Praise For Boy Bites Bug

**STARRED REVIEW**
"A tale that is funny, perceptive, and topical in more ways than one."

— Booklist

"The straightforward and uncluttered style will please lovers of the “Wimpy Kid” series . . . A sure bet for reluctant readers, pranksters, and budding entomophagists (bug-eaters).?"

— School Library Journal

"Petruck successfully weaves such important themes as bias, solidarity, and coming to recognize one's own privilege and prejudice together, delivering them in a plot that is so very middle school (bugs! sports!) that it will hopefully appeal to a broad audience who might not otherwise choose to read about these crucial topics. An admirable feat that entertains even as it instructs."

— Kirkus Reviews
