Bug Boys: Adventures and Daydreams

Random. (Bug Boys: Bk. 3). May 2022. 288p. Tr $13.99. ISBN 9780593309520.
Gr 2-6–Rhino-B and Stag-B visit fantastical venues both real and imagined in the most expansive volume yet of the “Bug Boys” series. The central bugs remain as curious, friendly, and in touch with their feelings and senses as ever, while their world is enormous and rich with detail above and below ground. They trade versions of a similar hero story with a dragonfly friend, with details shifting to fit the personality of each storyteller. Three separate aquatic communities are visited in a chapter stuffed with unique environmental features that startle the bug boys (and readers, no doubt) with their beauty and novelty. Another journey, this time underground, leads to the bug boys feeling grateful that they still have each other to lend perspective and company. “Our world got a lot bigger today. And it’s a nice feeling,” they say. Readers will agree.
VERDICT The variety of warm personalities, as well as baked goods, create welcome bug-size tours of a world worth exploring repeatedly for new and returning readers.
