Gregory Sampson wakes up to find that he has turned into a giant, purple-brown beetle! But no one except for Gregory's best friend Michael notices the difference—No one! Michael wants his best friend Gregory back. But why did Gregory go from boy to bug? And why doesn't anyone seem to care?

BEETLE BOY is a reminder to distracted parents that our children require our love and attention no matter how busy we are.
