Product description


'The artwork is quirky and bizarre but child-friendly, with lots of detail and colour on every spread.' -- FT

'You couldn't ask for a hipper book' -- FT

'this is an irresistible book.' -- Sunday Telegraph


Gregory Sampson woke one morning to discover that he had become a giant beetle. He had a large, purple-brown beetle body. He had two long beetle antennae. And six, thin, hairy beetle legs.' 'Gregory, get dressed and come down for breakfast,' his dad called. When Gregory Sampson wakes up one day to find he has become a beetle, he is pretty upset. But what is more upsetting is that nobody notices! Not his mother, not his father, not his sister, not his teacher. Only his best friend Michael realises that Gregory is now a beetle. Together, they try and work out what to do. This is a brilliantly funny story that has deceptively complex messages, touching on relationships within the family, self-confidence and how others perceive you. A classic of the future. "Better than Pokemon. I sent this to my eight year old nephew and I hear he's very upset that he's not Beetle Boy. He's memorised much of the book already. It's replaced Pokemon as his reason for living." - A customer from
