Review for Burt the Beetle Lives Here!

Burt the Beetle Lives Here! Ashley Spires, Insects, Non-Fiction, Fun, Graphic Novel, Home, children's BooksI received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

I just couldn’t resist this fun looking book when I saw it on Netgalley. I am not a big insect fan myself, but I also cannot resist reading about them. And this one looked cute and fun~

In this book we find out all about insects. From how they love cold, but some love hot. Some live in high places and some live in deep deep underground places. We learn about houses (ladybugs sleep in pinecones). Throughout the facts we follow a beetle named Burt. He is thinking about finding his own place. His sweet home. With a porchlight if that is possible (he loves that). We see him visit all his friends and neighbours and get invited inside. Sometimes it works out and he can say hi, other times.. well he gets stuck. XD Sometimes he just finds it disgusting (and I was fully agreeing with him). I really loved the blend of story and facts. Learning something new and root for the MC to find a home! I have to say I was a bit worried he may never find a home, but thankfully the ending was a very sweet and happy one and he even helped his friends.

I really liked the art style and how the bugs were drawn. Normally I am noping out quite a lot while reading books about insects, and while I did it a few times, it was less. Because it was mostly just cute and fun.

All in all, I had oodles of fun reading this one and I loved that there is an overarching story of our MC beetle to find a home! Recommended~
