September 2013 Book of the Month Can Doug the Bug find his way out of the terrible predicament he is in and, more importantly, can he get back to his best friend Trevor and make things up with him? Doug’s adventure is very exciting as he ‘boings’ into some unexpected places including the middle of a fried egg, a sponge cake, a pedal bin and then slap bang through a piece of toast. Doug has to take all the chances he can so that he can be reunited with Trevor and make up!

Doug the Bug by Sue Hendra

makes them unique." Junior

About the Author

Sue Hendra

Sue Hendra says:

"I graduated from the University of Brighton in 1994 and have been working as an illustrator of children's books since then. I've worked on over 70 titles now and I really enjoy it. I used to illustrate completely by hand but now I work on computer as well as painting. In addition to making books I run weekly art clubs for 8- 12 year olds at two of my local museums. I started this a couple of years ago and discovered that I really love working with children. I still live in Brighton and work in a shared studio with seven other artists."

Sue Hendra has made a name for herself creating picture books starring the most endearingly wacky array of characters.

Barry the Fish with Fingers made a big splash when first published in 2009, and has since sold over 100,000 copies. Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell was the bestselling new picture book for the first quarter of 2011, and Keith the Cat with the Magic Hat burst onto the scenes in summer 2012.

Sue Hendra’s Simon & Schuster titles have reached almost 300,000 copies in the UK alone.
