From beautiful butterflies to kaleidoscopic Christmas beetles, First Nations author and illustrator Helen Milroy returns to the backyard with a picture book designed to teach kids (and their handlers) all about the scurrying, scuttling, scooting, buzzing, zooming splendour of insects.

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘If Backyard Bugs doesn’t get kids out exploring their own backyards, nothing will.’ Sound Telegraph

‘As an information book for younger readers, a share book for newly able readers, a book to delight and excite, this charming little book has it all, snuggling comfortably in small hands, eager to go outside to see what they can see.’ ReadPlus

‘The joy of this book is in the illustrations. They are full-page, richly coloured, and each one is a unique design carrying strong influences from the contemporary art of the peoples of the Pilbara region of Western Australia.’ Reading Time

‘The detailed endpapers are immediately appealing and are a place where children can spy all the insects, while the compact size of the book complements that familiar, child-friendly premise of looking for backyard bugs.’ Magpies

‘With a vibrant sturdy cover and alliterative title, young readers will be instantly drawn to the book and delighted to recognise and identify the bugs in their backyard.’ Writing WA
