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.
