#BookReview: Bug Boys by Laura Knetzger

Synopsis: Join two bug friends as they learn about the science of the world around them and the meaning of friendship in this early graphic novel series perfect for fans of Narwhal and Jelly!

Rhino-B is a brash, but sweet guy. Stag-B is a calm and scholarly adventurer. Together these two young beetles make up the Bug Boys, best friends who spend their time exploring the world of Bug Village and beyond, as well as their own - sometimes confusing and complicated - thoughts and feelings.

In their first adventure, the Bug Boys travel through spooky caves, work with a spider to found a library, save their town's popular honey supply from extinction, and even make friends with ferocious termites!

What challenges will these two earnest beetles face? Whatever it is, you can be sure that Rhino-B and Stag-B will face it together -- with the power of friendship behind them.

This title will be released on February 11, 2020.

My Review: 

Anarece 3 stars 
This one wasn’t for me. I really didn’t care for the bugs and the story was very fast paced. A little to fast if you ask me.  I think this one would work better for kids that are under 8 years old.  The 7-10 age group I think goes a little high.  I do think that this one would work better for boys.  And those who like bugs. 

Christian 5 stars 
This graphic novel was a great adventure.  The story was easy to read and follow and the artwork was great.  I finished this book in about an hour and I really want to read it again.  The age group 7-10 was good but I think that older kids like my sister who is almost 13 would like this one to.  I really liked that at the end of the book there are pages to learn to draw the bug boys.  That was really cool!!

This one didn’t mesh with me at all. The story were way to short and the book was just too long.  I think this one would have been better by making the stories longer and having less pages.  I liked that the main characters were beatles that was something new.  This would be a great book for the classroom since the stories could be told over a few days.
