The Beetles: Poems in Praise of Beetles

  • "The Beetles: Poems in Praise of Beetles" was written by the British author Peter Brown and marvelously illustrated by Fran Evans.

    Peter, a retired teacher, beetle lover, published this book last year at his 85 years old. It is a compilation of 15 poems, each one talking about a different species of British beetles.

    The rhythm and form of each verse, and the beautiful illustrations, take us into a trip to the beetle world, with intricated stories about their life and behavior.


    This book was sponsored by Signspeed , Cresselly & the Darwin Centre, and 100% of the sales have gone to support the work of the Wildlife Trust on Skomer Island (UK).
