Du Iz Tak?

By Carson Ellis
Illustrated by Carson Ellis

The creator of Home explores the astonishing changes in a garden, where insects talk their own mysterious language.

In her follow-up to the internationally acclaimed Home, Carson Ellis invites readers to imagine the dramatic possibilities to be found in the natural world ... even the humblest back garden! With gorgeous, exquisitely-detailed illustration that will appear to children and art-lovers alike, and a wonderfully playful invented language, we soon find ourselves speaking "Bug" ... Du iz tak? What is that?

  • First, Carson Ellis explored the many possibilities of home... now she turns her eye to the natural world.
  • The invented, nonsensical language is hugely fun to read aloud (even though you don't know exactly what you're saying!) - it's BUG language!
  • Children will delight in following the various funny episodes exquisitely captured in Carson Ellis's trademark colour palette.
