"Lovely illustrations, sweet little story.,
May 1, 2010
This review is from: The Gentleman Bug (Hardcover)Just picked this up at my local bookstore today. The text is very simple and sweet. The illustrations are just lovely of little bugs and their beautifully detailed little village.
The story is about a simple teacher bug and how he loves to read and is often ostrasized for it in his town. A new lady bug arrives and he is so smitten with her that he decides to become a refined, well-dressed bug to impress her. Some mishap follows and in the end, he gets the girl.
This book won my heart because first and foremost, it advocates reading!!! Second, I just LOVE a beautifully illustrated picture book."
