A Bug Called Doug

It’s Drew’s eighth birthday and his best mate Mickey is sleeping over.

The boys are having the best day ever!

There are new toys to play with,

Yummy birthday food to eat,

Birthday games to share,

A hideous monster under the bed …

Did someone say MONSTER?!




Further Information

Discovering something under the bed, causes instant panic in the two boys. When Mum and sister Daisy get in on the act, pandemonium erupts!

Chris Collin and Megan Kitchin (author and illustrator of the wild and whacky Funky Chicken: A Bushy Tale of Crocs and Chooks) have teamed up again to bring you this delightfully Australian romp of a story that teaches us all a gentle lesson about preconceived ideas.

A Bug Called Doug has been long-listed for the 2015-2016 ISLN (International School Library Network) Red Dot Awards. These are a readers choice award which makes it extra special!
