Description

Heavy Metal Badger is one of The Times Best Children’s Books of 2023

An empowering rock anthem, from the fantastically-funny Duncan Beedie, celebrating identity and self-expression.

Badger is ready to ROCK!

The music inside him is ready to burst out.

He just needs to find a band.

But recorder class isn’t right. Neither’s the choir. Nor the marching band!

Will Badger ever find his musical tribe? Perhaps it’s been there all along . . .

Children will love the laugh-out-loud chaos that Badger causes on his quest for a musical home. Packed with tons of rock-themed references, puns and visual jokes, this is THE picture book for budding rock music lovers. Perfect for fans of Dogs Don’t Do Ballet by Anna Kemp and Sara Ogilvie, Zog by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, and The Lion Inside by Rachel Bright and Jim Field.

Publisher Review

“Leaps off the shelf like Slipknot’s stage-diving DJ thanks to its showstopping design and the warmth and wit of its words.” — The Times * Children’s Book of the Week * “A rollicking, riotous, rhyming storybook about a badger trying to find his musical tribe – with plenty of Black Sabbath and Foo Fighter puns to make the grown-ups smile.” — The Times * Best Children’s Books of 2023 * “An empowering tale that celebrates identity, self-expression and finding your tribe! Brilliant, bold, and enjoyable . . . An important addition to classrooms, especially for those children that feel a little different.” — Gardners * The Booksellers Circle *
