The Super Bugs help insects when they are in danger!



"Antennae up, eyes down.

Buzzing all around the town.

Super Bugs, Super Bugs, mighty, mighty

Super Bugs!"



These heroic insects are ready to fly in and lend a helping hand or wing! The Super Bugs spend all day doing good, and when the day ends...

Praise For Super Bugs

Praise for Hibernation Station by Michelle Meadows and illustrated by Kurt Cyrus:

"Written in rhymed couplets, the text tells the story in a satisfying way and sets a good pace for young children." -- Booklist



Praise for Itsy Bitsy Baby Mouse by Michelle Meadows and illustrated by Matthew Cordell:

"The simple, rhyming text makes for a bouncy read-aloud." -- Booklist



Praise for Hide and Sheep by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by Bill Mayer:

"Mayer populates his spreads with playful tableaux, enticing readers to explore each escapade and find (and count!) sheep. Done in pen and watercolor with an offset pattern to layer in color and texture, his simple, cartoony drawing style... is organic, spontaneous and skillfully controlled." -- Kirkus Reviews



"Mayer's illustrations are chockfull of action, adventure, and droll, rambunctious sheep." -- Publishers Weekly
