Bug and Bear: A Story of True Friendship

Bug  and Bear - Ann Bonwill, Layn Marlow Bug wants Bear to play but Bear doesn’t feel like it. Bug tries every trick to talk Bear into playing, but Bug only succeeds in making Bear angry.“Chameleon gave Bear an idea. She would hide from Bug! She leaned against a tree, thinking brownthoughts. But Bear didn’t blend into the bark as well as she’d hoped…and along came Bug,who spotted her right away. ‘Hide and seek!’ said Bug. ‘Is that what we’re playing?’”Bear uses things he sees around him to try to find ways to escape Bug and that’s interesting. I also like how the author and illustrator move the text on the page to replicate Bug’s ways of speaking.
