Beat Bugs: Help! by Anne Lamp- OPTIONAL

Lamb, Anne Help! (Beat Bugs).  PICTURE BOOK. HarperFestival (HarperCollins), 2017. $4. 9780062640604

There is a new catapult invention in Beat Bug Village and Jay really wants to try it out. Even though his friends think it’s a dangerous idea, he catapults himself up into the air and lands very far away in a jam jar. He can’t get out and has to wait for his friends to find him to help him, even if he doesn’t think he ever needs help or advice from anyone.

The pictures in this book are shots from the animated TV show. Because of that, they are really blurry and unappealing. They are difficult to see. The story is fine, but will be more interesting to readers who enjoy the television show. It won’t likely be picked up by many who don’t know much about it already. The lyrics to the song, “Help” by The Beatles are included in the back of the book.
