The Bug Club
In The Bug Club, Elise Gravel shares all her favourite and most interesting facts about these marvellous creatures, some of which are so unique and strange, you could almost imagine them living in outer space!
Most people know that spiders have eight eyes, but what about the caterpillar? These little critters have them beat with a whopping twelve! Did you know mosquitoes are attracted to smelly feet? That the honey bee has hair on her eyeballs? That butterfly feet double as noses? And grasshoppers have ears on their bellies? These are just some of the many things about bugs that make them endlessly enchanting. Elise's inquisitiveness and charm pop off the page as she takes us on a walk through her mind — and the awe-inspiring natural wonders that exist right outside our doorsteps.
If you're curious what the inside of a slug looks like, The Bug Club has you covered. Not only does Elise answer these burning questions, but she draws it all beautifully and brightly in her signature cartoony style.
The followup to her award-winning The Mushroom Fan Club, where Elise shares her delightful and family-friendly mushroom hunting adventures, The Bug Club offers more activities and fun for the whole family. This time, the treasure is hiding just below a rock or that pile of fresh fall leaves. (From Drawn and Quarterly)
