Beti and the Little Round House: eBook (Reflowable)

By Atinuke

Illustrated by Emily Hughes

A charming collection of four stories that celebrate a delightfully spirited little girl living in the heart of the wild countryside with family and friends.

Beti lives in a little round house in the green woods under the mountains. She lives with Mam, Tad, Baby Jac and her very own tiny goat called Naughty. Beti loves the little round house. With each changing season, there is always the promise of adventure! In playful, humourous and exciting stories, world-renowned storyteller Atinuke draws on her own experience of building and living in a round house to create a truly magical sense of place, and an unforgettable new children's book character for readers to immerse themselves in and embrace.

Customer reviews


'In this charming collection of stories – beautifully and tenderly illustrated by talented young Hawaiian artist Emily Hughes – Atinuke brings readers a truly magical sense of place.' The Lancaster Guardian

'Simple without being patronising, and full of a mixture of beautiful black-and-white and full-colour illustrations that appear on each page, this is a book that has bedtime written all over it and is one that is likely to be asked for over.' World's Smallest Library

'Sheer delight from cover to cover. With its gentle humour, Atinuke’s gorgeous descriptions of the natural world and Emily Hughes’ wonderful colour or black and white illustrations on every spread, and themes of family love, friendship and the power of believing in oneself, this is a lovely book to read aloud to foundation stage children.' Red Reading Hub

'There’s a classic feel to these cheerful, charming, beautifully illustrated seasonal stories based around Beti’s adventures in the wild. Home is created as a safe, central space for Beti and her family in a story for every season. Lyrical language and gentle drama make it perfect for reading aloud.' Inclusive Books for Children
