Today's favorite is "Who is the Beast?" by Keith Baker. About a year and a hlaf ago Cavett randomly picked this book out of the church library. Everytime we went in he remembered exactly where it was and wanted to read it. It is a charming tale of a tiger taking a walk through the jungle as other fearful animals speak of the tiger's presence. After passing several creatures, he finally comes to a reflective pond where he asks the proverbial question, "Is it I?" The tiger and the rest of the jungle animals determine that they all are beasts with unique but common characteristics.
The genius of "Who is the Beast?" is in the paintings. At the beginning you are introduced to each of the other animals, one by one. After the tiger sees his reflection, the animals in the jugle are then paired with the text. It's so "ah-ha!" There is also a very tiny snail on each page that is fun to seach for.
We hope you find this one and enjoy it as much as we have. I am sure our church library is wondering if we have lost it at this point.
