The author-illustrator Carson Ellis invites readers to imagine the dramatic possibilities to be found in a garden, where insects talk their own mysterious language.
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?
This book is suitable for children over 3 years old.
From the creator of Home, comes a wonderfully illustrated picture book written in “Bug”.
