Beetle Boy by Lawrence David

This is a brilliant picture book based on Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis but don’t let this put you off because it is related a an easily understood level.

Gregory Sampson wakes up one morning and finds he is changing into a beetle. The trouble is nobody notices and it really bugs him(excuse the pun). Firstly his family can’t be bothered, then his school mates treat him the same way.

After feeling down about it, Gregory discovers there can be advantages.

A great read-a-loud about difference and with a great ending.
