Du Iz Tak?

Publisher: Walker Books

A seed is sown in the ground next to a log and grows into a beautiful plant, much to the surprise of some rather stylish insect creatures. But what language are they speaking? What is a gladdenboot? And what of the threat of the booby voobeck?

The two great joys of this Carson Ellis picture book are the vibrant and quirky illustrations, and the humorous and intuitive invented bug language. Ellis manages to give a strong character feel to the little insects, and young and old readers will be repeating 'ma nazoot', 'rup furt' and all the other little phrases to each other for weeks afterwards. Perfect for fans of Jon Klassen.
