This book is an ideal read for children, and also adults who will enjoy reading it to children. They will be able to giggle together at the funny names for the bees and place names. Adults with imagination could change voices for each bee. Children who are able to read it themselves will be able to recognise the humour in it. Our bees in the UK. are now growing much less in numbers, and the more publicity they can get, the better. Do our children know where honey comes from? Are there any beekeepers near where you live? Sometimes in country places you may see a sign saying " Honey for sale". How about another Creepy Crawlie tale from Les Yates? - Genie.
It is a long time since I have laughed so much! Les Yates successfully weaves together a storyline that children can follow with humour that has adults in stitches. The Leatherjackets roaring down the street to the seaside on their Harley Grubsons is a stroke of genius; the reference to Beetleshire Broadcasting Codswallop (BBC for short) left me smiling; but when the Beetle Bonkers choir started singing, "We all live in a yellow tangerine", I was unable to continue reading to the children due to uncontrollable convulsions of laughter. Buy it and read it to your children - you will not be disappointed! Oliver Allmand-Smith.
Absolutely delightful read for children and adults. Subtle wit combined with skillful character narrative ensures you are soon drawn into the endearing, colourful world of Creepycrawlydale. You are guaranteed to be infected with a dose of involuntary chuckling and inane smiley face syndrome. My only frustration; Creepycrawlydale Tales was not published twenty five years ago when my children were at home to read to. Bring on the next instalment!
