Staff Reviews

A hilarious read that had me giggling with every page!

Poor bug has quite the day dodging  one creature after another.  Just when you think Bug is safe- WHAM they find themselves in another pickle.

The repeating phrase and rhyming words are sure to make this a fun read aloud for children of all ages. 

Snug as a bug indeed!

— Michelle


Meet a bug who is as snug as a bug can be. Oh, but not for long! Along comes a knock on the door and suddenly he's off on a wild and risky adventure...

Bug is chased by creature after creature—he's clearly ever so tasty—through woodland, dark caves, and a mighty waterfall!

He barely escapes becoming someone's dinner and comes close to meeting all sorts of sticky ends, but he keeps insisting he is "snug as a bug"! Can he make it back home? As snug as a bug can be?

Snug as a Bug is a hilarious picture book romp from Karl Newson, with energetic and characterful illustrations from award-winning illustrator Alex Willmore which help the story leap of the page!
