The BEAVER and the BEASTS - A collaboration between Patrick and Noah Guest

The Beaver and the Beasts is a hilarious tale about a cheeky little beaver who crashes a secret meeting of the world's notorious beasts. The beasts have travelled thousands of miles to converge for this important meeting: there’s the minotaur from Greece, trolls from France, a Yeti from Mt Everest and a werewolf from London. Their leader – the Loch Ness Monster – is calling an international emergency; children across the world don’t believe in them any more!

A story about facing your fears and keeping your sense of wonder, The Beaver and the Beasts is Patrick Guest's first book with his son Noah.

The narration is done by Australian Rock Legend Tex Perkins.

WINDOWS - A new book by Patrick  and Jonathan Bentley

Friday June 5th, 2020


 As the activity of our everyday lives stopped overnight, what remained was the thread of our humanity and interconnectedness – the simplicity of seeing the beauty around us and the real need for the touch and physical presence of those we love.


This beautiful book uses a delightful playfulness to capture the poignancy, the hope and the truth of this experience for many of us through this Coronavirus pandemic, and will become a treasured capsule of life in 2020.
