From the Publisher

Discover the magical world of Robert Stanek's Bugville critters! Robert Stanek is the highly-acclaimed author of more than fifty books for young people and adults, including Journey Beyond the Beyond and The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches. Robert Stanek's Bugville is home to many special critters, and it's where you'll meet Buster Bee and all his friends.

The Bugville Critters stories address all the major issues of growing up and are designed to appeal to the ever-growing interests of children three to eight years old. These refreshing stories combine facts about our natural world with fictional stories that instruct and entertain.

Robert Stanek wrote the Bugville Critters books as bedtime stories for his children. The stories address the real issues and challenges his children faced as they started school, made friends, and started to learn about the world around them. The stories provide real lessons about life, friendship, family, our world, the natural world of which we are all a part, and our environment.

Robert Stanek's children have enjoyed hearing the tales of Buster Bee, Lass Ladybug, Cat Caterpillar, Barry Beetle, and all their friends for many years. As they got older, they urged Robert to bring his stories to life for other children to enjoy, and that is what he set out to do in 2004. The first Bugville Critters stories were published in 2007.

Don't miss his #1 bestselling Ruin Mist books:

Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches #1, 2, 3, 4
In the Service of Dragons #1, 2, 3, 4
Guardians of the Dragon Realms #1, 2
Dragons of the Hundred Worlds #1,2
A Daughter of Kings #1, 2, 3, 4

Like the little engine that could, his books are the little books that could. Year after year his books have had steadily increasing readership. Interest from movie production companies has come and gone. New editions and new books have been introduced. A graphic novel and comics were released. He works now and again on a script that may someday be the first Ruin Mist movie (or it may not). "Who knows for sure what the future may bring," he says.

He thought 2002 was a banner year when print sales soared beyond his wildest expectations and he was living with a smile on his face. He thought that year would never be topped, never be achieved again. Until he brought Ruin Mist to audio in 2005 and the books catapulted to #1 on Audible for FOURTEEN consecutive weeks and then stayed on the Kids & YA Top 10 for the next THREE YEARS.

When that massive run ended, he thought, "Oh man, this is the end of the ride, but what a ride it's been." Then sales rocketed again and he had his best few years ever as a writer. "That was nirvana. That was magical."

By 2011 he thought for sure the ride was over. That this was it for Ruin Mist, but it wasn't so for the 12 months from October 2011 to September 2012 brought more new readers to the world of Ruin Mist than any other 12-month period. Ever. "Who knew books published so many years ago could still have best years ahead of them," he says. "The point being, you never know. That first or next book you write may be the one. Then again it might not, but you never know until you put yourself out there."

About writing, Robert Stanek says, "You know you're in the right place in life when you wake up every day with a smile on your face. You know you're in the right place as a writer when that smile is because you're eager to get to the keyboard, eager to get the thoughts racing through your mind down on paper."

"That eagerness to capture thoughts on paper has carried me through many days, many years, and many books. As a writer, that eagerness has made the blank page a friend rather than a foe. That blank page can be your friend too--if you let it. And if you let it, you can fill it with everything that's inside you, everything that you can wonder about, everything that you can dream about, and everything that you can imagine."
