Shortlisted for Book of the Year, Speech Pathology Australia, 2018


Ninjas! Pirates! Superheroes! What's next? BEASTS.

The fourth in Damon Young and Peter Carnavas' popular series: My Brother is a Beast. A brilliantly boisterous picture book celebrating brothers everywhere.

Some brothers tap tambourines

as the drummers keep the beat.

But my brother is a beast …

he pounds pianos with his feet.

All brothers are different. But what if your brother was really different? What if your brother was a beast?
