My Feelings:

On a starry, starry night Daisy hears a growl that makes her heart go pit-a-pat. It sounds like a story...
Every night a new tale drifts up to Daisy - tales of robbers, shipwrecks and lost princesses. Until one night everything goes very quiet. Daisy very slowly looks under the bed to find... Three storytelling beasties!

My review:
I love children books and ‘The Beasties’ has become one of my all time favourites. When I was little my mom always used to read me a bedtime story called ‘ik wil naar de maan kijken’, translation; I want to look at the moon. It was about a boy who didn’t want to go to sleep, but wanted to look up at the moon. I adored that story. The Beasties is also a bedtime story and it reminded me a bit of my old time favourite.

It’s about a girl, named Daisy who cannot go to sleep. She’s in a new bedroom, in a new bed and she’s lying awake. From there the story begins and introduces you to the Beasties.

The sentences are very short and easy to read. Therefore it makes the story accessible to children who wants to read their storybooks their selves.

The illustrations are beautiful. Especially the cover. It’s very shiny and all the three Beasties are there. So immediately you get a good idea who these Beasties are.
I like that the girl has red hair and that her name is Daisy, such a sweet name.

The whole story book has such a magical feeling to it and it makes me want to read it to all my nieces and nephews. They will adore this story and probably be a long time friend of Daisy and the Beasties.
