Thud!, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


A hilarious picture book from Nick Butterworth, the highly-regarded, prize-winning, creator of Percy the Park Keeper.In a fantastical land where even warthogs are beautiful, the peace is shattered one day by the deafening thud of something very large nearby.

Is it a monster? None of the animals feels brave enough to find out, but they know of an `Ugly Beast' who might be able to help. And when they find him, the animals are in for a truly monstrous surprise.

Review by

This is a story about a group of animals who rope the Ugly Beast into helping them scare away a monster. Luckily, the monster is no monster at all, but Raymond - I mean, the Ugly Beast's mother.It's cute and all, but it just doesn't interest us that much. YMMV.
