After George visits the Museum of Wildlife with Grandad, all he can think about is bugs! The very next day he goes out hunting, but he soon finds there are no more insects left in the garden, and the ones he has captured in jars don’t look very happy. George is about to learn exactly why bugs are so important. This is a brilliant, vibrant debut from Alex G. Griffiths.
