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!

Synopsis

Doug the Bug by Sue Hendra

Doug and Trevor are best friends who love playing in the garden. But one day Doug gets dug up! Stuck at the top of a tower block can Doug find his way back to his friend or will he be trapped forever?

"One of the best covers and titles this year complete with sparkly orange foil." The

"A funny tale that [...] ends with the moral that everyone has special talents that
makes them unique." Junior

Praise for Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell:

"With similarly bold illustration, eye-catching cover and simple text [as Barry the Fish
with Fingers] this has the potential to be another hit." The Bookseller

"Lovely glittery illustrations and simple text make this a must for pre-schoolers.'' The
Daily Mail

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
