The Baby That Roared by Simon Puttock

I enjoyed this book about the "baby" that arrived on the doorstep of Mr. and Mrs. Deer.  Mr. and Mrs. Deer very much wanted a baby of their own so when one suddenly appeared.  However right from the start something was not quite right with this baby.  First the baby would not eat.  Then the baby smelled bad.  More and more problems kept coming up with this baby but every individual that came to help, seemed to disappear.  Finally Granny Bear was able to get to the bottom of the mystery....and by bottom I mean, bottom of the "baby's" stomach.  The "baby" was not really a baby!  Instead the baby was a MONSTER!!!  Upon being discovered the monster took off and was never seen again....or was he?  Very cute that young students will enjoy.
