The Delicious Bug

Perlman, Janet. 2009. The Delicious Bug. Kids Can Press.

One delicious bug. Two foolish chameleons. And a pair of hungry crocodiles. Isn't anyone willing to share? Will peace be restored in the rain forest?

Willy and Wally are chameleons. Sometimes these two friends share bugs with their friend the frog who is less skillful in catching bugs. But when they both catch the same bug--and it is a delicious looking bug, the highest quality--neither one is willing to let go. It's very frustrating and annoying to be in a contest of wills. Both forget their friendship--for a while at least--and their common sense. Is any bug worth this much effort? And what about the risk? Note the hungry crocodiles! Can these two chameleons wisen up in time? Read and see in Janet Perlman's The Delicious Bug.
