Read the fun times and adventures Harry and his Dad share together during the day while working in their garden, then enjoy the fictional bed time stories Dad created for Harry about all the new insect friends they met that day.

The book also contains a lovely foreword from Nature expert and TV personality Bill Oddie who shares his high regard for both book and author with quotes like “if you think you can write better, I bet you can’t!”.

A book you and your young one’s will love and share together.

This book was so much fun to read! My two year old was involved in the story and had a blast as we talked about all the bugs and their stories. I was shocked at how much of this caught his attention and curiosity. He is only 2 1/2 so I fully anticipated this book to be a bit over his head. It wasn’t! He listened with bated breath as I read. 

Stringer does something I would love to hug him for. He write’s to children expecting them to understand and be intelligent. By this, I mean he doesn’t dumb down his language. There is no baby talk here. He writes with imagination and humor while still managing to weave in a good lesson here and there throughout the story.

Stringer also enlightens children to the outdoors as he hooks their curiosity and encourages a compassion for the insect world. He “humanizes” insects by giving them stories and names. 

The cover is amazing! What an eye catcher!

I love everything about this book and the messages it perpetrates. 

It’s a beautifully written story that I will cherish as part of my son’s library.

Have an adventure and get this book for your little!

I give this book the full 5 stars!
