    One thought on “The Beast of Monsieur Racine

    1. Ronyell

      I have actually first heard of this book on a children’s video series called Weston Woods and I enjoyed it back then and I enjoy it now! “The Beast of Monsieur Racine” is a children’s book by Tomi Ungerer, which is about how a retired tax collector named Monsieur Racine meets up with a strange beast near his pear tree and becomes instant friends with the beast. “The Beast of Monsieur Racine” may have some gruesome images that might scare smaller children, but it is still a fun book t [...]

    2. Dolly

      This is an incredibly bizarre tale. I read about it in the book Reading Magic: Why Reading Aloud to Our Children Will Change Their Lives Forever by Mem Fox and when she said that the book inspired her daughter to learn more about France, I was intrigued. The story is entertaining, but very odd. The illustrations are rather detailed, but what's with all the blood and gore and zombies?? I liked the setting and I was sure to point out the particularly French aspects of the story. But it's just such [...]

    3. Rachel

      Really weird story with interesting details. Basically Mr. Rancine grows prize-winning pears but won't share them with anyone else. He finds out that someone is stealing his pears out of the garden and so sets a trap for them and discovers the beast. He becomes good friends with her and studies her and says he's discovered a new creature, so that the Academy of Sciences in Paris invite him there to show her off. She goes there and causes this huge hubbub when it is revealed that the "beast" is r [...]

      Monsieur Racine wakes up one day to find his precious pear tree looted of all the award‐winning fruit. When he discovers that the culprit is a funny‐looking beast, his anger gives way to curiosity and two become friends. But the beast is not quite what it seems, eventually it comes apart–literally to show itself to be no beast at all, but the two playful children from next door, covered with skins and rags.This is a delightful picture book story that my 4 year old grandson just loved. He's [...]

    5. Sem

      As some reviewers have remarked, at times unfavourably, there is stealth gruesomeness in many of the illustrations. They're all the better for it. The adult me appreciates their subversive and mischievous nature, but the child me would have loved them as well. The more there is to discover in illustrations, the more satisfying they are, even if the discovery is a severed foot in a hankie.

    6. Molly

      Maybe my Tomi Ungerer exploration is winding to an end- these just haven't really appealed to me like the artwork would suggest. The stories are just kind of there. (I know, best book review ever.)

    7. Karen

      I created a special shelf: "Weird" just for this book. The story is pretty straightforward. Monsieur Racine discovers a beast eating the pears from his tree, tames it with treats, and makes it his companion. But wait a minute, what do we have here? A recurring bloody axe, drippy messes on almost every page, a hobo carrying a sack that seems to be holding a severed human foot? The author's name subtly trailing out of the frame on the cover? Part Edward Gorey and part Maurice Sendak (to whom it's [...]

    8. The Brothers

      This is an odd book of a retired, near-recluse of a man befriending and being befriended by an odd animal. Never having come across an animal quite like this before, he takes it to Paris to show to the Academy.(view spoiler)[Turns out it was just some precocious children dressing up. Monsieur Racine doesn't seem to mind the deceit and continues to be friends with the kids. (hide spoiler)]Okay illustrations.

    9. Chrissy

      Super weird. As an adult reading this, I just thought it was odd and kept doing a double take at the illustrations, a lot of subtle, grotesque images in there. My daughter is young enough not to have noticed any of that, but my husband and I kept looking at each other, shaking our heads. I don't think we'll be reading this again.

    10. Abby

      This is an odd, goofy little story about an old bachelor who discovers the strange beast who has been stealing his prized pears. The strange creature becomes the man's companion and friend, even though he has no idea what sort of creature it is. The truth about the creature's identity is surprising and difficult to believe, but it is ultimately a heartwarming story about an unlikely friendship.

    11. Tyrone Hardy

      This story was somewhat boring initially, however it become far more entertaining as the story wore on. I hate to spoil the ending, but the mysterious beast splits in half. I feel that it is a funny way to introduce to 1st and 2nd grade students the idea of 1 part of a whole. It is a funny story.

    12. Fort

      Wish there was a picture of the cover. This book is a huge part of why I decided I wanted to draw as a kid. And apparently Tomi Ungerer is some sort of existential philosopher too, but you wouldn't know it from this book. Well, maybe you would.

    13. Cheryl

      On the youtube edition, youtube/watch?v=beFaw, I did not see the gore and zombies some other reviewers mention. Maybe if I had I would have given it only three stars. Maybe not - some kids revel in that stuff, and there should be books that delight them as well.

    14. Suzanne

      Tomi Ungerer's books are always entertaining, with enough of a slightly dark side to interest adults as well as children.The Beast of Monsieur Racineis one of his best.

    15. P.

      Tomi Ungerer! He's one of the children's authors/illustrators that I didn't appreciate enough when I was in elementary school.
