There’s a Bug on my Arm That Won’t Let Go

Publisher: HarperCollins Children’s Books

Review

What do you do when you a bug lands on your arm and won’t buzz off? This girl tries to shake it off but it just won’t budge. And even her friend Melody or her dog won’t touch it, and Pearl the cat just sits in the sun ignoring the girl’s dilemma. When the girl thinks it can’t get any worse, a bird lands on her head that won’t go off until he has the bug on her arm… Will he succeed?

Similar to his previous work, this David Mackintosh book is witty and sharp with a distinctive style. The combination of hand drawings, ink printing and paper collage makes it spectacularly eye-catching, while the subtle story, that sometimes a stink bug needs to belong somewhere, is very heart-warming.
