Book Review: Bonkers About Beetroot by Cath Jones

PUBLISHER: Maverick Arts Publishing

PUBLICATION DATE: 5th October 2017

What a gorgeous children’s book and definitely quite unique (I have certainly never come across a children’s book that featured beetroot).

The zoo animals are in despair, No one is visiting their zoo anymore and they fear for the worst, until Zebra has an idea – why not grow a giant beetroot to attract visitor?  After all, people love beetroot (well, according to Zebra anyway).

The characters in this book are brilliant. From an overenthusiastic zebra to a grumpy penguin – you name it. The storyline and illustrations are super cute and this book makes for a great bedtime read. 

The book takes a very unexpected plot twist towards the end which greatly adds to the overall impression of it, you will most likely say out loud “I didn’t expect that!” Very refreshing for a children’s book to do something out of the ordinary, which makes it a lot more memorable than many of its contemporaries.
