Maurice the Unbeastly

Author(s): Amy Dixon

Picture - Hardback (Ages 3-6)

Beasts roar! Beasts destroy! But not Maurice.
This frightfully unbeastly tale about staying true to yourself is for everyone who's just a little bit different.

With his melodious voice, fondness for kale, and unfailing politeness, Maurice isn't quite like other beasts. So his concerned Mama and Papa send their ridiculously photogenic beastie to the Abominable Academy for Brutish Beasts to learn how to behave badly. Will Maurice master growling, scowling, snarling, and howling? Or will he prove that being different is a good thing after all?

Product Information

Amy Dixon grew up as one of seven siblings, so the only peace and quiet she ever got was inside a book. Amy is the author of Marathon Mouse and Sophie's Animal Parade (both Sky Pony). She and her husband Rob wrangle their four beasts in Clovis, CA, where she encourages them on a daily basis to be a bit less beastly. Karl James Mountford has been drawing, painting, and generally making a mess since he was a kid. Born in Germany, he was brought up in the UK, and currently lives in Wales, where his sketchbooks rarely get a day off. This is his first picture book. Visit him at
