Synopsis

Finally, here?s a brand-new book in Eric Carle?s extraordinarily popular Very series. And with a new surprise! When a little click beetle falls onto his back, he seeks the help of a wise old click beetle. ?Look at me,? says the more experienced click beetle, giving a loud CLICK and flipping onto its feet. But try as he might, the clumsy little click beetle just can?t get the hang of it--or can he? In the tradition of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Carle creates a winning story of perseverance and pride in achievement complete with an ingenious fiber-optic microchip that truly gives voice to the valiant little beetle as it CLICKs its way through the colorful pages and somersaults into your heart.
