The Very Ugly Bug by Liz Pichon


The Very Ugly Bug by Liz Pichon

There once was an ugly bug. A very ugly bug. Spotty red bug has teeny tiny eyes so she can hide in the berries. Skinny green bug has a shiny green back so he can hide in the leaves. But the very ugly bug has big boggly eyes and a horrible hairy back. How will she hide when a huge hungry bird comes looking for a tasty bug snack? A funny, clever story about being happy with who you are! Successful illustrator, Liz Pichon, has had many picture books published. Glossy spot lamination on the paperback cover.

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!
