Our bug is a very ugly bug. She wonders why she is so different to the other bugs. Why doesn’t she have teeny, tiny eyes so she can hide in the berries, or a shiny green back to hide in the leaves. Instead she has boggly eyes, a wibbly head and a hairy back. Then a big hungry bird comes looking for a yummy snack and bug finds out just how remarkable she is.
This is a cute story about being different and discovering yourself in the strangest of circumstances. Bug searches for her identity in a story that is simply told. This is easily relatable and enjoyable. It is wonderfully and quirkily illustrated.

Little Wolf likes things pretty and pink. She also likes stories. Her parents have other ideas and so send her out to catch dinner. Along the way she comes across Little Red Riding Hood. A little girl is on the list her parents gave her and Little Wolf knows what she is supposed to do but she would rather listen to fairy tales.
A delightful and cheekily told rendition of the traditional tale with a bit of a twist. It illustrations are bright and inviting matching the light tone of the text. Little girls are likely to love this.
