    1. Loved this story. The illustrations are fantastic. A must-read at Halloween time for the kiddies and the adults that are children at heart. The character of Birdie is darling. No matter what comes her way she has a positive attitude.


    2. We met the author and bought a personalized copy of the book that has been a Halloween favorite since 1995. Great pictures, cute story!



    3. The story tells of an old woman, who lives in a village, where the people are afraid of the Brindlebeast. The old woman has to work for the villagers in order to live. They take advantage of her needs, and make her work early in the morning, and send her home before dark, so she doesn't run into the Brindlebeast. The villagers give her stale bread and cheese to eat. One evening the old woman finds a large pot with gold in it on her way home. She ties her shawl around it to pull it home. Part way [...]


    4. Birdie is a poor but content old woman who earns just enough cleaning homes for the townsfolk to sustain her humble way of life. One day while heading back home through the woods she stumbles upon something that will change her life forever. Beware the Brindlebeast is based on an old English tale retold and illustrated by Anita Riggio in a colorful and engaging way. A perfect story to share near All Hallows Eve.


    5. I love the message of this book! If you have a "monster" in your life, you can see it for what it really is when you face it. Great for kids who have a tendency to be a bit fearful and anyone who needs that message.


    6. We're reading this book a bit early, but as the weather is starting to turn cool, it feels like an autumn evening and this book helps get us in the mood for Halloween. The story is dramatic and entertaining and we loved the ending. The illustrations are colorful and complement the story nicely.


    7. A very enchanting story from Early New England. A story about facing fears and being happy with what life hands you.
