Pest Fest

Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

June 2007

Brimming with energy and humor, this witty picture book redeems bugs in a whole new light. The homely housefly is sure he doesn't stand a chance to win the title of greatest pest of all. After all, there's pretty stiff competition between the lovely ladybug, the musical cricket and the long-legged spider. But just when the house fly's sure he'll be defeated by the host of boisterous bugs, things take a turn for his favor. And HE ends up being the prince of persecution after all--as the most pesterly chump in the bunch. 

Full of rhythm and drama, this book is a perfect read-aloud!

“Young entomologists will go buggy for this book.”– School Library Journal
