Stories from Bug Garden

By Lisa Moser
Illustrated by Gwen Millward

Come peer between blades of grass at the secret lives of a garden’s tiniest inhabitants, revealed in lyrical vignettes and charming illustrations.

What may appear to be an abandoned garden is actually home to an unusual array of insects. Meet a ladybug who prefers making mud angels to acting like a lady, a roly-poly bug who loves to roll (“wa-hoo!”), a cricket who dreams of grand adventures, and a whole neighborhood of bugs gazing up at a fireworks show of flowers bursting into bloom. These inviting vignettes are sure to have readers seeing bugs in a whole new light.

  • A gentle introduction to gardens, insects, and poetry.
  • Ideally suited to classroom use.
  • Perfect for bug lovers of all ages!
