Overview

From the creators of the New York Times bestselling Ladybug Girl series comes a story about sibling cooperation and play featuring a member of the Bug Squad, Bumblebee Boy!



When Sam is Bumblebee Boy, he likes to fly alone, using his imagination to battle dragons, pirates, and tigers. Sam’s little brother, Owen, would like to play with him, but Owen doesn’t have a cape or a mask, and Bumblebee Boy doesn’t need his help. But when more aliens than Bumblebee Boy can handle land on the moon, will he be able to defeat them by himself?



Through their imaginary adventures, Sam and Owen discover just how much fun a brother can be, and learn that there are times to play alone and times to play with others.

Booklist

“A good choice for story time, Bumblebee Boy is sure to be a hit with Ladybug Girl fans, as well as the zillions of superhero wannabes out there.”
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
From the creators of Ladybird Girl comes superhero Bumblebee boy Sam, enriching his adventurous play with his vivid imagination. "BUM BA BUM BUMM!" But as he aims his "stinger" at an attacking pirate, he is interrupted by his little brother Owen, who wants to play with him. Preferring to play alone Sam tells him, "...you are not a superhero like me." With his "BUM..." introduction, Bumblebee Boy is about to capture Fire Dragon when Owen tries again to join in, only to be rejected. The superhero is off again, this time to stop the Giant Saber-Toothed Lion. And again, there is Owen, in the way. It is only when Bumblebee Boy encounters aliens on Mars that he realizes he needs help. He and Owen reach a comforting understanding. The end pages serve as display panels for isolated, seemingly cut out drawings of the characters. Ink and watercolors produce sketchy single and double-page illustrations of Sam preparing for adventure and creating his imaginary actions using his real toys. The light-hearted tale needs only a few lines of text along with the action pictures. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—"Bum Ba BUM BUMM!" Sam, aka Bumblebee Boy-featured in two of the popular "Ladybug Girl" books-now has a story all to himself…or does he? In Soman's terrific watercolor and fine-line illustrations, rife with dramatic perspectives, he is just about to defeat Greenbeard the Pirate…Fire Dragon…Giganto, the Giant Saber-Toothed Lion…when he is yanked back into living-room reality by his little brother. "'I play now?'" asks the small blond boy in a star-and-comet sleepsuit, "'…I am soup hero too!'" Even children who are sibling-free will get the message and the fun in this engaging tale about brothers, imagination, frustration, and cozy compromise.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
