Frieda B. and the Zillabeast
Frieda B. voted Best Picture Book Series by the National Moonbeam Children's Book Awards! Here's the third book in the series... Frieda B. loves books. So much so that she often becomes part of them; the words spring up under her feet and the pictures and characters become a world she’s able to walk right into. Frieda B. and the Zillabeast begins with just such an adventure. Frieda and Zilla enter a marvelous storyworld of classic fairytales. Yet with each turn of the page, Zilla grows bigger, bristlier, and growlier – until a hair-raising encounter with Little Red Riding Hood puts everyone on edge. What turned him into a Zillabeast? And what can bring him back to the sweet Zilla we all know and love? The answers to those questions reveal a lot about the importance of putting others first… and the love we welcome in to our lives when we do.

"A sweet kiss on her head made her little heart swell. She had pancakes, her dog. She had love. All was well."
