    Graphic Non-Fiction I received an electronic ARC from Drawn & Quarterly through NetGalley. Gravel shares information about some of her favorite bugs. The artwork is realistic but has some cartoon style overtones that elementary level readers will appreciate. The facts are presented in easy to follow paragraphs and bullet points. A set of other facts is included at the end as are some illustrations of imaginary bugs. Readers can use this book as a starting point for their own insect explorations; G Graphic Non-Fiction I received an electronic ARC from Drawn & Quarterly through NetGalley.

A solid addition to elementary school libraries for mid to upper elementary level readers.

    Elise Gravel’s lifelong love of bugs shines through in this cute, funny non-fiction picture book. This is a great read for any age group interested in bugs. The illustrations are gorgeous, the writing is fun, and there are facts in here that anyone could learn from. Did you know the dung beetle is the strongest insect in the world? Now you do! Many thanks to D&Q for an advanced review copy of this title.

    This book is a compilation of the author's favorite facts about bugs. The art is adorable and there is so much information. It had bugs in the book that I haven't heard of, so I learned a lot. It was cute, but didn't dumb down the facts or the vocabulary which I absolutely love in nonfiction books for younger audiences. This book is a compilation of the author's favorite facts about bugs.

    I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. Super cute and informative! I loved the illustrations and definitely would have loved this graphic novel when I was a curious kid who thought bugs were super weird and cool and probably aliens.

    Received an early copy in exchange for an honest review. This is a really sweet and adorable way of exploring bugs and their weird habits. Honestly, none of the bugs are that "creepy" looking because the art style makes them sweeter looking. An adorable book that's a must-have for any kids!
