Product Description

The beasts are back! If you haven't heard, the whole animal kingdom is roaring its approval for Beast Friends Forever, this collection of delectable verses about animals both rascally and sweet. With delicious poems by Robert Forbes and zany illustrations of each poem by master artist Ronald Searle, these wildly playful rhymes and charmingly intricate illustrations will keep readers seven to seventy coming back again and again. The anteater (who is not a cheater), a brave meerkat named Lee, Bugsie Seagull, and Dapper Don the fox feature along with many others in this timeless collection.

Praise for Let's Have a Bite!:

"People often take a stab at children's books after reading Goodnight Moon to their own kids . . . It seems Mr. Forbes simply has crazy rhymes going through his head." —Wall Street Journal

"Playful rhymes and charmingly intricate illustrations." —Miami HeraldĀ 

"There's no shortage of offbeat characters (who become even more so in Searle's kinetic cartoons), including a color-changing emu, a well-dressed narwhal, and a photogenic buffalo." —Publishers Weekly

Robert Forbes serves as a company Vice President as well as President of the lifestyle magazine ForbesLife. After 25 years in New York City and six in London, he and his wife currently reside in Florida. His other two books of poetry for children, Beastly Feasts! and Let's Have a Bite!, were also illustrated by Ronald Searle.

Ronald Searle delighted millions with his comic creation St. Trinian's, also published by Overlook and adapted into a film starring Rupert Everett, Mischa Barton, and Colin Firth. He was a distinguished contributor to numerous magazines around the world, including The New Yorker.
