Product Details


Boelts’s energetic text and Duncan’s comical, delicate illustrations, showing a thoroughly embarrassed Stick Bug and a delighted Beetle, combine to make this picture book a silly treat that will have readers giggling and pointing while learning valuable social-emotional lessons about personalities and relationships. Delightfully funny and warm.
—Kirkus Reviews

Squat, mustachioed Beetle makes a humorous counterpart to slender, bespectacled Stick Bug, and the addition of the voluminous purple coat to the latter’s stickly form is especially amusing. It’s clear no misbegotten coat will come between the two antennaed friends, and a quick repurposing by Stick Bug allows them both to enjoy it.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
