Synopsis

The Bugliest Bug by Carol Diggory Shields

A rollicking rhyme about a contest for bugs that nearly ends in disaster! Do you have six legs? Do you wiggle or crawl? Could YOU be the bugliest bug of them all? When damselfly Dilly hears about the Bugliest Bug contest, she goes along to see who will win. There are fireflies, ladybirds, stink bugs, click beetles, crickets...and some very suspicious-looking judges! Can Dilly alert her insect friends to the dangers she has spotted? Illustrated in a style and colour reminiscent of 1930s MGM cartoons and written in galloping verse, this rollicking tale will delight bug lovers - and haters - everywhere! * By the creators of the popular Saturday Night at the Dinosaur Stomp and Martian Rock. * Nostalgic artwork reminiscent of a 1930s MGM cartoon by one of the USA's hottest children's book illustrators. * Funny and slick, this rhyming tale about a young damselfly who saves the day will delight bug lovers and haters alike!

Reviews

* Written in lively rhyme, this unusual tale trots along nicely and has a satisfying ending. Junior * A lovely... book... A good choice for pre-schoolers. Sainsbury's Magazine
