Catch-22 is one of my favourite books. I studied it in high school and now as an adult it has Immovable Object status in my bookcase. Remember Captain Black’s Loyalty Oath Crusade? I have my own Glorious Keep Kids Reading Crusade and I am willing to go to the same ridiculous lengths as Captain Black.

In honour of my latest GKKR Crusade weapon, Nit Boy, I am looking for more great books on bugs. Here are my Top 5, excluding Nit Boy:

1 The Very Hungry Caterpillar – Eric Carle
2 Charlotte’s Web – E B White
3 The Very Ordinary Caterpillar – Garry Fleming
4 Grasshopper on the Road – Arnold Lobel
5 It’s True There are Bugs in Your Bed – Heather Catchpole & Vanessa Woods

Can anyone suggest more?
