I am a big fan of the Ladybug Girl books. (I am considering it as a Halloween costume for Little Lucy at some point.) Bumblebee Boy is now starring in his own book and I am sure it will be the first of many. Sam is Bumblebee Boy, who loves to fly alone while battling pirates, dragons, aliens and more. However, Sam also has a little brother named Owen who wants to be a “soup hero” too. Sam learns that there is time for solo flying and a time when a sidekick is fun to have along as well. This is a playfully creative book that will appeal to young boys with great imaginations. I love how the illustrations really pop out when young Sam is pretend playing and then become much more simple and plain for the interruptions by little brother Owen. While there is a slight message about including and playing with younger siblings the books is really centered on imaginative play and how exciting it can be to create your own alternate reality. I hope to read about more Bumblebee Boy adventures in the future!
