Stories from Bug Garden
by Lisa Moser, illustrated by Gwen Millward
Candlewick Press, 2016

A fun reading story about bugs in a garden, told in poetry!  Delightful.  Creative.

The book opens with a poem about Lady Bug, who doesn’t like to be a lady who sips tea, when she really wants to run barefoot, make mud angels and whistle through a blade of grass.  We learn that Lightning Bug is good at follow-the-leader, but not so good at hide-and-seek. Each bug’s personality appears and, like any family, there are conflicts, catastrophes and just plain silly things that occur.

Illustrations in ink, watercolor, and pencil develop each character’s personality.  A delightful summer read.
