It’s like the first bug that sees me arrive at Gram’s house tells the other bugs I’m there. “Hey! Guys! Look! Tom’s here!”
“I love to bite that kid!”
“Me too! I bit him five times last year!”
“Oh, yeah? I stung him ten times!”
“No you didn’t!”
“Yes I did!”
“You’re a bee! If you sting him one time, you die!”
“Well… um… I.. wanted to sting him ten times.”
Downrated my rating to 2 stars. It was a good book, but Michelle and her insert lots of bad words here attitude just sickened me and pissed me off. The last part especially was just disgusting. 😐
Nothing against Tony Ross, but for some reasons the books with his illustrations are the ones I absolute hate/dislike. It is not the art that is bad, I actually quite like his art, but the stories are horrible. They often have terrible, disgusting characters (or side-characters), and often the stories are way over-the-top and way too weird.
Wel, dit was niet wat ik had verwacht. Ik had verwacht een leuk kinderboek over races en spannende dingen. Wat ik eigenlijk krijg is een saai boek met zure en slechte karakters die ik enorm vervelend en onaardig vond en races met zoveel valsspelen dat ik dat ook algauw maar stom vond.
