Covered in earthworm slime and assisted only by her cat and her little brother, Roberta rescues tiny creatures. You know, the ones stranded in the middle of the sidewalk, upside-down, flopping, or near-frozen. A lot of the time, that earns her funny looks from kids at school.
But one day there's an invasion of tiny creatures in her classroom, and Roberta will need to use her knowledge and creativity to show everybody that tiny creatures aren't so scary after all. They just need friends who rescue and understand them!
This quirky and adorable picture book celebrates kids who love bugs — and the role they can play in educating their peers! Roberta's compassion for the stranded insects and other creatures will speak to many children, and her information about the swarm of baby spiders that appear in the school will be new to many kids. With fun text by Curtis Manley and colorful illustrations from Lucy Ruth Cummins, this book will encourage young readers to become rescuers of tiny creatures too.
