Holly from Year 5, Saltersgate Junior School:

This book had some very interesting facts in it but most of them were boring. If you like facts or beetles or both then I would recommend this for you but it just wasn't my type. My favourite part in this book was the parts were it told you how to make beetle catchers and homes and all of the beautiful pictures of beetles. If you don't like beetles or artwork then I would suggest that you don't read this book . .

Owen from Year 8, The Armthorpe Academy:

This could be described as just an extra book one to go with with Maya Leonards Beetle Boy book. Similar to those slim books that are published along side the Harry Potter series like Tales of Beedle the Bard. I would though, have to disagree. This is so much more. It is a reference book for all those lovers of all things beetle and also for those who have known and loved beetles forever! It is, beautifully illustrated by Carim Nahaboo and that is a bit of an understatement. It is full of interesting facts, figures and as I said, some superb illustrations. My favorite illustrations from the book are The Feather Horned beetle, the Blue Monkey Beetle and the Frog Legged Beetle sometimes know as the Kangaroo Beetle because of it's big legs! When i was in 6 i saw Liz Millions illustrations on beetles and i would like to draw some with her.
