Synopsis

The beasts are having a feast. Animals from everywhere are bringing their favorite foods to a picnic. Young readers will love identifying each creature and guessing what tasty treat they have to share. "Bears bring pears . . . parrots bring carrots . . ." What will the antelope bring?

Mr. Lent's eye-catching art, combined with a story that is perfect for reading aloud, make The Beastly Feast an ideal and amusing introduction to animals and food.
