Review for The Secret Life of Bugs

Review for The Secret Life of Bugs

I received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

I am normally not that big on bugs, I don’t mind them that much, but there are types that just give me the chills. Still, when I saw this adorable and pretty book on Netgalley I couldn’t resist!

I love that instead of just giving us information about bugs (and tons about ladybugs) we follow a small ladybug named Luna! She will guide us through the wonderous world of bugs. From the strongest to the biggest (and tiniest) to various ways that bugs make homes (and what they call home, in which I learned that apparently 4 ladybugs were send to space) to the importance of trees to swimming and flying bugs. There was a treasure trove of information presented in a fun and colourful way and I learned a few new facts while reading, which always makes me smile.

While I did like the folklore at times, I am still not entirely sure if I found it fitting. They were a fun addition and I love seeing the illustrations bring the story to life, but I just truly came for the non-fiction parts.

The illustrations though, this is where this book really shines. The art by Vivian Mineker is just so cute, fun, adorable, colourful, and I loved it. I am not a big fan of creepy crawlies as I would call some bugs, but in this one they weren’t too bad!

All in all, I am happy that I found this book and that I had the chance to read it. I would recommend it to all wanting to learn more about bugs in a cute/fun way.

Star rating, 3 stars
