The Beast of Blue Mountain – A Campfire Story for the Fearful, by Lucy Adams, is a charming poetical story. The illustrations and the story itself are well done. The pacing is good and kept the pages turning right to the end. This glossy blue book made a perfect gift for my grandson. I can hear him reading it over and over. “Crunch, crunch. Swish, swish…What is that noise in the night?” This one is a winner. I highly recommend it.

After so many children's books that require a nap half way through, this book was a pleasant change of pace. I read it to my four year old daughter and at first I was thinking it may be too scary, but I kept on. She was captivated by it. The reason she was captivated was because this book is fun to read out loud. I wanted to read this book with a lot of animation in my voice. My daughter hid her head, gasped where she should and giggled. At the end of the book she laughed and said, "I like that book, it is really funny." It will remind the reader of the good 'ole campfire stories that we all loved to be "scared" by. A great fun read for children and adults.

My kids love love love this book! It has quickly become a favorite. It is just scary enough to keep them captivated but also very funny. My oldest even brought it to Show & Share to share with his class. I highly recommend it.
