Here, TFK Kid Reporter Victoria Hanson shares her thoughts on Bug Boys, by Laura Knetzger. For more book reviews, check back next week.

Line Break

Bug Boys is a book about Rhino-B and Stag-B, two best friends who happen to be bugs. They remind me of people at my school who have very different personalities but who are still best friends. Bug Boys is a good book for kids who enjoy reading graphic novels about science, friendship, and (you guessed it) bugs. Overall, I enjoyed it. The only part I didn’t like was when the boys got into a fight with other bugs for calling them names. Fighting is not a good way to solve problems.
