Even though Stuart's talent is a strange (and gross) one, he uses it to his advantage, works hard and becomes very successful. The book is filled with humorous and disgusting illustrations, lots of strange and funny bugs and has as many laugh out loud moments as it does 'eeew!' moments. It's also a book that shows children that they should make the most of their talents, whatever they may be.
Stuart The Bug Eating Man by Calvin Innes
Stuart The Bug Eating Man is about a man with an unusual taste for all things creepy and crawly. He likes nothing better than munching on a centipede sandwich or guzzling down a tall frosty glass of liquidized slug. The more wriggly, the more crawly and the more slimy the better. To Stuart a bug is like a fine juicy steak, or the stickiest, tastiest piece of chocolate cake. Unfortunately Stuart's family don't share his taste in snacks. A silly, disgusting and humorous poem about a man who eats insects, much to the disgust of his wife and family. He decides to use his unique 'talent' for munching bugs to his advantage and becomes a pest control man...the BEST pest control man in fact! Eventually his talent makes him and his family very rich and leads on to him being successful and happy.

Brighton Argus: Fantastic!
ITVs Daybreak:Insects, slime, all the fun stuff kid's enjoy! Sounds perfect!
Hull Daily Mail: Delightfully disgusting!
Roberta Karchner (Amazon): If you have a totally gross preteen, preferably male, he will love this book.
ChelseaMamma (Chelseamamma.co.uk): The book is all written in short rhymes, and is great for teaching boys that rhyming can be fun, even if it was about a liquidised Slug being drunk from a mug and there are only four lines on every page, so it is great for those just starting to read.
Junior News & Mail: A funny disgustingly wonderful poem
Read It Daddy: It really reminded me of the fantastic Edward Gorey stories though it's not quite as dark and gothic as those.
