Beetle Boy by Laurence David
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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...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.
