The Amazing Adventures of Bumblebee Boy (Ladybug Girl)
Sorry this is posting a little late! We have a sick little guy, so our schedule is not quite normal today. 

The Story: When danger lurks, Sam transforms into the amazing Bumblebee Boy (complete with theme music)...at least until his little brother Owen crashes the game. Can Bumblebee Boy defeat a pirate, a giant lion, bank robbers, and aliens? Or will he need the help of a very willing sidekick?

Mama opines: We love the Ladybug Girl books. Sam is a friend of Lulu (Ladybug Girl) and appears in some of her books. This is Sam's solo debut and it's a great adventure story for little boys and girls. It will help a little guy or girl who has trouble including a baby sibling. David and I were acting out the various scenarios (pirates, aliens, etc.) for a long time after reading and he asks to read this all the time.

Thoughts from David: I like when they fight the aliens and then he doesn't let his brother play. But it's not about playing your way, it's about having fun.
Favorite part: When they are chasing the bank robbers and Owen cuts them off in his car! 

Happy Reading!
