review by . June 17, 2010
A gentleman bug (a male ladybug, apparently), a reading teacher, tries to impress a ladybug with some snazzy clothes and a flashy set of wheels, but she spurns him until they discover their mutual love of books, at which point they decide to hang out together.    The story is a bit weak.

About this book


PreSchool-Grade 2—Populated by a variety of grasshoppers, wasps, bees, and other bugs in Edwardian-style clothing, a British-looking village provides the setting for Hector's odd love tale. The Gentleman Bug, described as a bookworm and dressed in what appears to be scout attire, finds that his life takes a new turn with the arrival of Lady Bug. Determined to attract her attention, he changes his style, turning himself into a dapper fellow sporting striped pants, vest, cravat, and top hat. Lady Bug is not impressed. Then Gentleman Bug gets invited to the opening of the new library, where he meets the librarian (aka Lady Bug) and the two read happily together ever after. This slight but sweet story has a diverse insect cast, pleasing colors and detail, and a bookish theme.—Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA
