Twist and Hop Minibeast Bop by Tony Mitton
Bug-fans young and old will be hard pressed not be delighted by Twist and Hop Minibeast Bop, the latest offering from British award-winning duo Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees.
Children’s poet Tony Mitton invites us into a rollicking mini beast romp, bringing us a rhyming tale with beetles, bugs and other creepy crawlies having “the wildest dance they’ve ever had”. The story clips along at a perfect reading aloud pace.
Well matched to the dynamic words are Guy Parker-Rees’s bright and bold illustrations. These leap off the page. Parker-Rees is a seasoned illustrator, among his many books is the popular title Giraffe’s Can’t Dance.
Twist and Hop Minibeast Bop brings the secret world on mini-beasts to life in a tale packed with exuberance. Twist and Hop Minibeast Bop is a great picture book, full of colour, and sparkling with fun.
