Discover CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS: Poems to Drive You Buggy

An amusing new poetry collection from award-winning author David L. Harrison

Honesdale, Pennsylvania February 2018 – Noted children’s poet David L. Harrison takes a humorous look at the perennially kid-friendly topic of bugs in CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS: Poems to Drive You Buggy, a unique poetry collection about an entire school just for creepy crawlies. Featuring delightful illustrations by Julie Bayless, the book will be published by WordSong, the poetry imprint of Boyds Mills Press, this March. 

Here is a winning combination for poetry fans and bug enthusiasts alike! Termites, stinkbugs, gnats, and more insects galore attend the Crawly School for Bugs, where a mosquito nurse always wants to draw blood, noisy crickets take classes in “How to Be Annoying,” and the Golden Rule is “never eat a friend at school.” Bayless’s illustrations hilariously portray these buzzy students and provide the perfect match for Harrison’s clever, funny poems. CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS will be released on March 20, just in time for National Poetry Month in April. 

Kirkus Reviews says, “With deftly constructed rhyme and rhythm patterns, lively language, and alliteration, (these) poems have immediate appeal. They're splendidly matched by whimsical cartoons that reward a second look. A cheerful way to make a connection with the natural world.”
