To Catch a Beast

Flora is in Switzerland on holiday with her father and some of his writer friends. She’s starting to get bored when a hideous beast starts terrorising the local countryside and its inhabitants. While the adults take an academic interest in the creature, Flora and her new friend, Pierre decide to take action.


After several nights of look out duty, they get their first chance to chase down the beast and are despondent when it eludes them. But with some careful spying and detective skills they come to realise that the beast is not all it seems. So it’s off to the inventing barn for the two of them in their quest to beat the beast at its own game.
