Bug Boys is the endearing tale of Rhino-B and Stag-B, two great friends who go on adventures in which they find more about the world, their friendships, and themselves. The book is split into multiple short stories, which show the adventures that Stag-B and Rhino-B go on, whether it be to the beach or a spooky cave, the Bug Boys are always having fun or learning something about themselves. This book is great, though the focus is on Rhino and Stag-B, the side characters, such as Tula, Dome Spider, and Dragonfly’s characters are also explored thoroughly. Overall, the stories are fun, entertaining, and humorous , and the themes and morals are good things to live by. The only complaints I have for this are that I wish we could have explored this bug civilization more. It would be nice to get some more insight on how these bugs live in a society, but that might come in the sequel. My other complaint is for the early chapters of the book, and I know it was changed by the end, but Stag-B’s nose in the first couple of stories is really ugly. Though it was fixed, when I first got the book, and the design of the faces differed from the cover, I was kind of disappointed. It would look better to just erase his nose entirely. Other than that, this book is a great 8.5/10 for me, and I can’t wait for the sequel!
