Eve’s Book Review

This story explains what happens to a bug who won’t do anything for himself and expects everyone to do for him. It teaches a good lesson on learning self-responsibility. The artwork is colorful and cartoonish.


About the Reviewer

As a children’s author, I am blessed to live in the imaginary world of Barn Town where the animals talk and share their lives with me. I believe that I have the best job there is. Another joy I have is reading other children’s authors and sharing their work with you. Read a book and share the joy with others.

Storytelling is as much a part of me as breathing is to my body. I have found that as I tell stories, putting them on paper, it makes room for the other stories that are building and will need to be told soon. I write for children because of their wonderful imaginations. They are the very best at believing that the probable can become possible. Nothing is any better than when the reader climbs into the adventure and joins the journey with you.
