Bumblebee, Grumblebee by David Elliot. Pub. Gecko Press, 2021

November 16, 2021 Comments off

This board book for pre school and juniors is a work of genius. Older children and adults will get as much enjoyment out of it as the youngsters.

Bumblebee becomes a Grumblebee when the string on his buzzy bee breaks. Pelican becomes a Smellican when he sits on the loo and Rhinoceros becomes a Crynoceros when he drops his icecream but what does turtle become with a hose in his hands. Check out this brilliant board book and find out.

The illustrations are brilliant, my favourite is the Smellican, and will entertain a junior for hours. They will want you to read it to them again and again.

The ending is superb.

Gecko Press have a habit of publishing works of genius there are loads of them on this blog.
