Bart is a dreadfully sophisticated chap and rather kindly brought a packet of frozen sausages with him for us to nosh on as we enjoyed the fabulous book he brought...
|Are you sitting comfortably?|
"I Love Bugs" written and illustrated by none other than Emma Dodd (you remember the glamorous one with the red lipstick!..read more here)
|*Blush* Here I am with Emma after she planted an unexpected smacker on my head! (I daren't tell Bart!)|
|I Love Bugs by Emma Dodd|
|BEEutiful - but where are my sun glasses?|
Who knew there was so much fun to be had in the back garden - (Well Bart and I did)
This book is a revelation - A tender rhyming text leads the reader to explore the critters lurking in the garden with a budding young naturalist, but there's a surprise ending with involving an eight legged friend (bet you can't guess who that might be!)
NB:A highlight for me are the blue bottles who grimacing ghastly faces really made me chuckle.
Perfect for sitting on the lawn surrounded by bizzy bumble bees and fluttering butterflies this book has rightfully been long listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal (which is announced on Friday 1st April )
Now Bart must toddle off home as I expect he has a nap in front of Midsummer Murders at about this time in the afternoon!

Thanks Bart, Thanks Emma and Good Luck with the Kate Greenaway! (we've got our paws and tails crossed!)
