Discover the inhabitants of the garden through lyrical vignettes featuring all of its residents, from a horsefly who dreams of looking like a horse and a ladybug who would rather make mud angels than sip tea and sit up tall to a bee who is content to settle back and watch the clouds and the greatest cricket explorer in the world. The bugs join toge Discover the inhabitants of the garden through lyrical vignettes featuring all of its residents, from a horsefly who dreams of looking like a horse and a ladybug who would rather make mud angels than sip tea and sit up tall to a bee who is content to settle back and watch the clouds and the greatest cricket explorer in the world. The bugs join together to watch a fireworks show of blooming flowers and to figure out how to reach a peach in the tree. “The garden was old, . . . /But it wasn’t forgotten/ anymore/because they called it/Home.” These funny and friendly tales will have readers looking at bugs in a new way. The colorful and charming ink, watercolor, and pencil illustrations cleverly depict the backyard denizens. VERDICT A unique look at a garden’s smallest residents that’s sure to please readers.—Sarah Polace, Cuyahoga Public Library System, OH
