PRAISE FOR The Bug Girl:

“McNamara’s skillful text centers Spencer’s voice, while Kerascoët’s loose ink, colored pencil, and watercolor illustrations render winning details with emotional sensitivity.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Coauthored by fourthgrader Spencer, this memoir captures both the personal exhilaration of sharing a passion and the crushing disappointment when others misunderstand or belittle that devotion.” —Booklist

“Inspirational
for young naturalists.” Kirkus Reviews

“Whether preaching to a bug-loving choir, promoting respect for others’ passions, or investigating a path toward middle-grade fame, this title will satisfy many audiences.” —The Bulletin

“This book has a great message for children to stick with what they love, regardless of what others may think.” —Resource Links

“This book affected me so strongly — the first in 2020 to end up clutched to my chest.” Sudbury Star
