Synopsis: Puzzled that others find his appearance unusual, Ugly Bug has many adventures in the garden before making a surprising discovery
From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3-A short, sweet saga for young romantics. Ugly Bug strolls his way through a day, avoiding disaster thanks to his bad looks and cleverness. Though mildly curious about why some call him ugly, he is too content with himself and with the world to fret. Indeed, being unattractive saves him from becoming a young crow's breakfast. A snake isn't as fussy, but Ugly Bug outwits it just in time to stumble upon a lovely lady of his own species, who finds him "simply perfect." The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are loaded with exquisite detail. One could easily envy a bug's-eye view of the world after seeing these carefully crafted morning glories, daffodils, and asparagus. Weeds become intensely beautiful as dandelions and thistle glow on their respective pages. Each full-page illustration is surrounded by an intricate border, while smaller pictures, placed among the text, help to enhance the story. Though not a rousing read-aloud, this might be the perfect bedtime book for gentle souls who appreciate things of beauty and charming, ugly bugs.
