“Bompa’s Insect Expedition is such a fun, almost non-fiction, volume… As Bompa narrates the bug world, the twins, armed with magnifying glasses, backpacks, and safari hats, crawl around following ant trails, wade through grasses swaying over their shoulders, and swat at mosquitoes. [B]elongs with Diary of a Spider by Doreen Cronin and other insect picture books that subtly teach bug facts while adventuring with the insects.”

Bompa’s Insect Expedition

Written by David Suzuki and Tanya Lloyd Kyi
Illustrated by Qin Leng
Published by Greystone Books

It’s time for the twins to go on a nature expedition with Bompa. What marvelous place will they explore this time? Tidepools at the sea? The pond full of frogs’ eggs? Maybe deep in the forest? But to their disappointment, they are just exploring outside the door. Yet, as they begin to search for insects, they find world-champion flyers, eaters, and weightlifters. And more tiny surprises at every turn!

With their Bompa at their side, they find a way to recognize the amazing feats and important role of all insects. . . even the annoying ones! Featuring gorgeous art by Qin Leng, this picture book is a lush, colorful tour through a world we too often overlook.
