No such cat is native to England, and the variations in description have led some cryptozoologists to believe that there might be more than one The beast of Monsieur Racine book. I would recommend this book to children ages seven and up because let us face it, smaller children might be frightened by the various images of people getting their limbs cut off and if I was a parent, I might be a bit hesitant in showing smaller children this book because of those gruesome images, but it does depend on the child if they like the book or not. I also loved the image of Monsieur Racine himself as he looks very distinguished with his small pot belly, friendly looking eyes slightly hidden behind some spectacles and a pointy mustache. Reader ratings: 4.

    The Daily Express offered a reward for the capture or slaying of the Beast. Monsieur Racine was a retired tax collector who owns a magnificent pear tree that grows the most delicious pears in all of Paris. Every time millionaires came by to offer money to Monsieur Racine for his pear tree, Monsieur Racine would always turn them down claiming that the pear tree belongs to him and him alone. The thing about these gruesome images is that they are not the core focus of the story, so children probably might not notice these images, unless some children like looking at various images closely.
