The Baby Beast
When an egg arrives on his doorstep, Beast doesn’t quite know what to do: feed it? Take it for a nice long walk? Drop it? Doctor Yoko tells him he must keep it warm and just wait, but exactly what he’s waiting for is a mystery to the Beast…
Everyone will enjoy the side-splitting humor from award-winning Chris Judge. Adults will recognize (some of) Beast’s first-time child-care mistakes, while children will laugh out loud.
