Two Little Bugs

Author(s): Mark Sommerset

New Zealand Picture Books

Little Bug Blue has a wish. Little Bug Red has an appetite. Together they discover that getting what you always wanted is sometimes just the beginning.

Little Bug Red who lives underneath the leaf and Little Bug Blue who lives on top of the leaf.  They try to convince each other that life is better on their side of the leaf, but neither is willing to try something different. 


Little Bug Red decides to start eating the leaf bit by bit, and so each page gets smaller and smaller, until there is no leaf left, just a stalk. 


They discover that the end of their leafy home is just the beginning of a new adventure.
