The Girl Who Loves Bugs

Evie LOVES bugs, but no one around her seems to understand. While Evie would rather spend all her time outside studying insects, her moms hurry her indoors to prepare the house for company. Everything needs to be PERFECT for her Great-Gran and the rest of their extended family. But Evie doesn’t want the fun to be over, and she has a great idea... to bring her bugs inside!

Despite her best efforts to keep her little friends hidden, before she knows it the family reunion is totally ruined! With the unexpected help of Great-Gran — who turns out to be a bug-enthusiast too — Evie learns that her interest in bugs is what makes her special (and that the happiest place for bugs to be is outside where they belong). The author-illustrator team of A Dress With Pockets presents a humorous, sweet story about a passionate girl and her insect friends.

Description

"[Great-Gran] encourages Evie’s 'curious mind,' suggests they build the creatures fancy accommodations, and foresees that Evie will make exciting discoveries one day (backmatter notes that this tale was inspired by entomologist Evelyn Chessman). This charming, gently humorous U.K. import is told through jaunty verse that scans well. It will appeal especially to bug-loving children — no fuss here about a female bug connoisseur — but will also resonate with youngsters who simply love the natural world or are devoted to an unusual hobby." — Kirkus Reviews
