The Beast and the Bethany
The Beast and the Bethany is a great book about a man recognizing his flaws. Ebenezer Tweezer is a very rich man, all thanks to the beast. The beast lives on the fifteenth floor of his house. It asks him to bring it different foods, and in return, it gives him whatever he wants. When the beast tells him that it wants to eat a child, Ebenezer is horrified. Eventually, he decides to find a bad child and feed it to the beast. He chooses Bethany, but then decides she isn’t so bad and attempts to delay the beast.
This was a pretty good book. It wasn’t my favorite, but I still enjoyed reading it. It was a lot different than most of the books I’ve read before. The book had many illustrations, and they helped me get an idea of what the beast looked like. This book was very well written, and it kept my attention. It was also an easy read, although it was still a good book. I would recommend this book to kids aged ten to twelve.
