In every Beast Quest book (other than bumper editions) there is always a prologue. These prologues always show villagers getting attacked by Beasts. For example, in Vipero the Snake Man, a nomad is killed by Vipero. In Komodo the Lizard King, Badawi is killed by the humongous lizard. My point is, is the prologue really necessary? It doesn't really seem needed, does it? The Beasts always demonstrate their power when facing Tom? Why does it matter if you exclude the prologue? Of course, I'm not saying it's a problem, but still! Put in your opinions!
