I gotta hand it the author, his well-paced, playful stories balance reality with fantasy in a palatable way. For ex., in Beastly Beast he tosses in some humor to get the kids giggling while capturing the relentlessness monotony and gnawing exasperation of a bored child. Those first couple pages amused my kids but also made them squirm in anticipation. When the main character finally finds some action, my daughter and I were relieved it wasn't too far beyond reality. I guess the two of us are less willing to suspend our disbelief and prefer to focus on all things fantastic that can be found in everyday life. More intense kids, like my son, may find the story slightly less appealing.

A good book of short stories from a gifted writer, but written for a younger audience. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone older then twelve. By contrast most of his stories like "Shades Children" and "Sabriel" I wouldn't recommend for anyone less then twelve.
My favorite story was about small video pirates who steal rental videos to make into jewelry.

Garth Nix has displayed a wide array of talents in a number of different YA forms and styles. There's the edgy dystopia of Shade's Children for older teens. The Seventh Tower series is a fine and ripping magical quest and redemption tale. The Keys to the Kingdom established a fascinating parallel universe, and compares favorably to Neil Gaiman's "Neverwhere" and China Mieville's Un Lun Dun. The Abhorsen trilogy established Nix's bona fides in high fantasy. So, when he turns his hand to middle grade whimsy, you want to take a look.

And guess what? There's not a false step in the bunch. The book is composed of four short stories and each story is divided into manageable chapters that are just right for new readers. Each story features a kid hero/heroine who has spunk, imagination and brains. And, each story has a puckish and sly plot, and is told in an arch, cheery and engaging style that makes every story feel like a light treat.
Who knew that Nix could be so effortlessly funny and charming?

I found this overlooked gem while browsing my local library's ebook holdings and am very surprised that this marvelously entertaining book seems to have drifted off everyone's radar. These are just very satisfying bite sized comedy/adventure/fantasy stories and an excellent find.

Fantasy writer Garth Nix has created a short story collection for the younger set. Exploring the underworld of rat pirates; adoptions of Earthlings by odd, tentacled aliens; a princess literally searching the belly of the beast; and a brainiac solving the dilemmas of a kindhearted sea serpent, Nix introduces young readers to the possibilities of the imagination between the covers of a book.

ONE BEASTLY BEAST is an excellent choice for the reluctant reader. The full manuscript is around 120 pages, which can make a RR groan. However, each story is only about a quarter of the book, so readers can actually finish a single storyline very quickly. Additionally, illustrator Brian Biggs provides a number of illustrations to kick-start the imaginations of readers who might need a little extra motivation to continue to the end.

Possibly the strongest point regarding the construction of this book, however, is that even though it is a collection of four short stories, Nix still divides each story into chapters, thus giving young readers a taste of chapter books, as well as further dividing the reading challenge into smaller bites for the most reluctant of readers.

For those who are looking for something that will motivate a boy to read, this book will do just that, with pirates, rats, inventors, and aliens. Nix doesn't forget about his young female audience, however; they will love the adventure-seeking princess, penguinmaids, and the super-smart Serena, who saves the day with her bravery and willingness to dig deeper and understand the heart of a vegetarian sea serpent.

Overall, this is a book for every young reader; Nix has scored a fantasy winner with ONE BEASTLY BEAST (TWO ALIENS, THREE INVENTORS, FOUR FANTASTIC TALES).
