Shipton, Paul. Bug Muldoon: The garden of fear

Sphipton, Paul. Bug Muldoon: The garden of fear. Penguin, 2001 [0-14-230242-2]
Bugs Muldoon is a detective beetle in a garden who is hired by the ants to find out what is happening in the garden. This is a fun story with fully developed bug characters and reminded me of the movies "Antz" and "A bugs life." It seems there is a plot by half of the ants to conspire with the wasps to take over the garden. I nearly was going to send this 138 page book over to our elementary school, but it was so fun, I have decided to keep it. After all, middle school kids need silly stuff too (and so do I.)
