Author Angela Stevensabout this book: When George leaves his high-rise apartment in New York and moves to the Pennsylvanian countryside, he finds there is not much call for superheroes and not many friends either. A chance wish on a dandelion clock finds him a new buddy with a surprising secret. George's boredom soon disappears when he

shrinks to the size of a beetle and enters the world of his insect pal.

Follow George's adventures with his pet ladybug, as they attend an insect concert, build a bug hotel, and unknowingly become the next item on a praying mantis' menu.

Mariquita is reminiscent of the children's classics I grew up with. A humorous full-length chapter book that advanced readers will devour, and you will love reading to your younger children.

Filled with magic and adventure, your child will want to read Mariquita over and over again. Fans of Roald Dahl's James And The Giant Peach or A Bugs Life, will love Mariquita and its quirky insect characters.

This story is recommended for 8-12 y.o./grade 5 readers and younger children who love listening to chapter books.
