‘A truly original picture book’ Books for Topics recommends Bonkers About Beetroot for reception and KS1 class use!

Books for Topics recently posted a wonderful review for Bonkers About Beetroot by Cath Jones with illustrations by Chris Jevons:

‘This is a truly original picture book that, like its name, is just a bit bonkers! It tells the story of an innovative zebra who is looking for a way to bring in visitors to Sunset Safari Park to save it from being closed down. In true entrepreneurial spirit, Zebra decides to grow the world’s most enormous beetroot which, with a nod to the story of the Enormous Turnip, becomes so big that the only thing to do is to eat it. However, eating the beetroot has unintentional and colourful consequences for Zebra in a humorous twist. This is a really funny story that is suitable for reception and KS1 and would fit well with topics about plants and animals.’

Thank you!
