Product Description

Review

This wonderful tale of lost and found exudes a slapstick sense of comedy and is perfectly pitched for a toddler's emerging sense of fun (Junior)

A classic picture book from master storyteller Mick Inkpen (Carmarthen Journal)

This is a tremendous book for encouraging children to join in and get involved (EYE Magazine)

Book Description

Billy has lost his beetle. Who will be the one to find it?

Mick Inkpen's captivating, cumulative story is well-matched by Timothy Spall's reading of it.

Love this book and enjoy reading it for my 2 year old grand daughter. You have to really look for the beetle which is great for getting children to really study the pages. Mick Inkpen is a brilliant children's writer and I recommend any of his books but this one especially.

I really like this book. It's the first book by Mike Inkpen that I've bought and as a result I've bought some other books by him too and really liked them too. The story is simple and well written, and the pictures allow your child to explore every page (finding Billy's beetle). I work with children and use this a lot with preschool/nursery and reception aged children.

Billy's beetle is a very sweet story. Children will enjoy trying to find Billy's beetle as they turn each page. They'll also enjoy all the other characters that Billy meets on his journey to find his beetle

Mick Inkpen's lovely stories are always engaging and entertaining. Both my children enjoyed this delightful adventure over and over again. Great to read and share at bedtime. I am now buying for the next generation.

The story is similar in structure to lots of traditional stories (The Enormous Turnip, The Pancake, The Gingerbread Man etc etc) in that lots of characters gradually join in the quest to find the beetle for Billy. It is very well written and my daughter enjoyed spotting the beetle on each page. A nice little twist at the end, too. Great fun and holds the attention of 2-4 year-olds very well.

I was looking for a nice story and here I've found one. We use the audio cd as part of our bed time routine. And listen to the story every night, and I still like it. When my daughter is old enough for the book I'm sure she will have great fun finding the beetle which is hiding on every page. The simple but fun story written for children, and I laughed when the lady lost her sausages too. Happy reading.

We bought this book for one of our children when it was first published over 15 years ago. It was a delight then, beautifully told and illustrated and has never left our book shelves since. Once a friends' child was old enough to start having stories read to him, we couldn't wait to buy him a copy so that their family could enjoy it too! You will want to read it over and over again!
