Overview

When a young boy accidentally swallows poor Buz , a bug, along with his morning cereal, he's prescribed two pills to remedy the situation. Little does he know what is going on inside! In his award-winning signature style, Richard Egielski invents an ingenious behind-the-scenes adventure of two keystone cop-like pills in pursuit of a bug inside a human body. Buz eventually makes his escape, only to discover he has caught a bug of his own. On with the chase!

Pretty darn cute, though I'm actually grossed out by the idea of accidentally eating a bug and having it float around near my eyeball. Besides all that, the illustrations were immensely entertaining, doing the biggest part of the storytelling job. Lots of closeups of chewed up food and eye innards, heh heh. Would be great for part of a storytime - maybe on bugs? Or being sick?

This book was disappointing to me because of the illustrations as well as the story. It was frustratingly not close to my idea of a children's book. What was the point here? In my family we've been teaching our children about germs. There is something strange about pills with flashlights, forcing a bug to get into a capsule, and then see the bug flowting away in the bath tub and arriving home. Harmful bugs have a home? Okay it had a ditty at the end that was almost cute but I am just disappointed enough to not only give this book to the local thrift store but throw it away.

This book is wonderfully creative. I know the age suggestion is older, but I read it to my 8 month old and she loves it! The artwork is very good. It's just a great book. I would strongly recommend it for every kid's home library.
