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"

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Graham creates the atmosphere not through excessive description; his prose is quiet, low key. Rather it is his illustrations that draw us in. The rain streaks across the pages, the water sprays out from under the traffic wheels. Above all there are the details, the different perspectives, nothing is forgotten. [...] Exceptional." * Books for Keeps *
"With beautiful illustrations that are full of detail and whimsy, Carson Ellis has created an imaginative and quirky world, hidden away at the bottoms of the garden. Written in an entirely invented language, this playful book cleverly shows how meaning can be found even without understanding the words. A brilliant book for children who are making their first tentative steps in learning to read. A delightfully unique tale that his the possibility to change with every reading." * Carousel *
This story is written in "bug language", an idea that borders on lunacy but is in practice a joy and a quirky triumph. It is enormous fun reading this book aloud and trying to decipher exchanges between talkative insects... It is a refreshing change from the worthily educational: only the most duty-bound parent could be bugged by this. * Observer *
Children will love the world portrayed, and love too the fact that adults need to decode this new language just as they do. * Andrea Reece, LoveReading *
The illustrations are wonderful and each spread offers plenty of details about life in the bugs' world. The book offers a fabulous bugs' eye view of the world and its wonders with plenty of untold stories to explore. * School Zone *
