A series of short stories written about minibeasts for young children and self-readers.

Do you know the minibeasts in your garden? Enjoy listening and reading about their adventures and learn some fun facts about each minibeast. Can you learn the Beetlebop with Bertie Beetle? Or follow the figure-of-eight dance with Belinda Buzz Bee and Walter? Or can you follow Sydney Snail and Eva’s trail around the garden? What about reading how Willie Waspie catches the robbers and saves the day?

The author lives in Stockport, Cheshire. A grandmother and a retired nursery/infant and special needs teacher, she was inspired to write her own stories for young readers. She also hopes her stories will be useful to teachers and schools when introducing the minibeast theme.

    Beautifully presented lovely stories for children who can read themselves or like to listen to stories. The beauty of this book is its educational approach. Each story builds a child's knowledge. Well done! Our granddaughter very much enjoys this book and remembers some facts. Lovely holiday reading.

    What a wonderful, thoughtful book on minibeasts. This arrived today and I read with my 5 year old cover to cover. Fun stories, and super facts all about the minibeast characters. We then went to the garden to look for some minibeasts and my daughter relayed some of the facts she had learned when we found snails and spiders!! Really enjoyable book and thoroughly recommend for children, especially as they learn about minibeasts in school.

  • Sue King

    What a fun little book for children! Wonderfully written with beautiful illustrations and loveable characters with adorable names. All the little ones who read the book thoroughly enjoyed it, and wanted to look for the little mini beasts in their gardens and in the park. Perfect way to introduce little ones to the outdoors. I would thoroughly recommend it especially in nursery schools as well.
