About This Book
Brimming with energy and humor, this witty picture book redeems bugs in a whole new light. The homely housefly is sure he doesn't stand a chance to win the title of greatest pest of all. After all, there's pretty stiff competition between the lovely ladybug, the musical cricket and the long-legged spider. But just when the house fly's sure he'll be defeated by the host of boisterous bugs, things take a turn for his favor. And HE ends up being the prince of persecution after all--as the most pesterly chump in the bunch.

 

Full of rhythm and drama, this book is a perfect read-aloud!

    Calepino was blessed with good fortune. After his mother died giving birth to him on a slave ship, he was taken in by a wealthy woman who gave him every advantage. Then on his thirteenth birthday, Father Pedro, a devout priest, asks Calepino to assist him with the slaves coming into Cartagena. Soon he's fighting seasickness, living in squalor, and cursing every minute. That all begins to change when he meets Mara and Tomi, a mother and son who remind him of his own past. When Tomi and Mara are sold to a cruel man, Calepino is more determined than ever to find a way to save them. Will this be his chance to change someone else's fortune, or will he put them all in more peril?
