Description

When a bug-crazy girl needs to ace a big math test, she finds a clever way to solve her problems, 100%.

Bug is the nickname-that-stuck for a quirky little girl who's mad about insects and drawing . . . and hates arithmetic. But when her teacher promises the class they can go on a field trip to the science museum only if everyone does well on their math test, Bug knows she HAS to pass. This humorous, character-driven story shows kids who struggle with math (or any subject) that there are many ways to find the correct answer--if you use your imagination and count on the things you love.
