"This beginning-reader comic finds its strength in a common developmental challenge and literary trope: trying to convince someone to try an unfamiliar food."

– Horn Book, November/December 2023

"This format will entice children who are drawn to the graphic style and feel. Fenske’s brightly drawn, expressive bugs are adorable, and the story flows and moves quickly. ­VERDICT Buy it. Kids will have fun reading the banter between Bug and Trilobite"
