The Giant Boy-Munching Bugs
Steve HartleyAges 6-8
Hi! I'm Oliver Tibbs (some people call me 'Oliver Fibbs') and sometimes my life gets a little DAB - Dull And Boring. So from time to time I 'get creative' with the truth at Show and Tell. But this time something exciting REALLY HAS happened! Dad has been bitten by a strange tropical insect, and struck down with Wenghi Benghi Fever. It's highly likely the bugs will get me too - and I'll break out in green spots, orange boils, a red rash and probably turn into a bloodsucking zombie killer - like Agent Q in my favourite comic!
This book is fantastic. It's really funny and I really enjoyed reading every chapter. I can't wait to read the other Oliver Fibbs books.
The Ilford Recorder
they all loved it, and I enjoyed reading the story to them and seeing how they were inspired by it . . . Steve Hartley, your next book is eagerly awaited here!
Humour and excitement buzzes off the page as Oliver Fibbs launches into another infectious and exaggerated tale... Entertaining, fast paced and funny, it's no exaggeration to say Steve Hartley's new hero will be a hit with readers, reluctant or otherwise. Fun illustrations compliment the lively text, including the seamless flow into sections of comic strips that bring Oliver's imagination to life.
