Bug Blonsky and His Swamp Scout Survival Guide

By E. S. Redmond
Illustrated by E. S. Redmond

Bug Blonsky is back, making mischief at camp, tracking Bigfoot, and entertaining readers with another madcap list: his “unofficial” Swamp Scout Survival guide.

In an uproarious follow-up to Bug Blonsky and His Very Long List of Dont's, Bug takes early chapter book readers along on a weekend Swamp Scout trip. At Camp Win-Kee-Noo, you can earn merit patches for “paying attention” and “following directions,” but not for any of the things Bug excels at—stuff like armpit farting and being wiggly. As a True Bigfoot Believer, the only patch Bugs wants on his Swamp Scout vest is the Curious Creature patch for spotting an odd or uncommon animal. Know-it-all Abner insists that if Bigfoot were real, he would be listed in the “Terrible Things to Avoid” section of their official Swamp Scout survival guide. Leave it to Bug to write his own guide, jam-packed with tips and tricks for making the most (mischief) out of camp . . . plus a few startling discoveries. Funny, irreverent, fast-paced, and packed with comic illustrations, Bug’s second outing will keep young readers in stiches (and possibly out of poison ivy).

  • Laugh-out-loud text and hilarious, stylized illustrations from E.S. Redmond depict Bug Blonsky, a hyperactive 7-year-old who would much rather search for Bigfoot than do Scout activities on his troop's camping trip
  • Easily distractible but well-meaning children everywhere will find a kindred spirit in Bug
  • The narrative list format and inviting language is appealing and will be great for reluctant readers
