The Bug that Plagued the Entire Third Grade

2009 DFP Awards: Best Children's Book:

Ignoring his running nose and worsening cold, Matt’s single-minded pursuit of a rare bug wreaks havoc on his school, his teachers, and his classmates.

This amusing picture book celebrates the ambitious spirit of a third-grader as he tries to study, and uncover a distinct insect on the brink of extinction. Young readers will be buzzing as they follow Matt’s quest to win his school’s Bug-A-Fair. Or will he create a third-grade epidemic?
