Format: Hardcover
My mom read this book to me when I was a baby. I loved it. It's two books in one. It's about this little cricket that can't sing and she has to learn how to find the music within. The other story is about this book named Cooty-Doo, who's father is a trash man. Cooty-Doo must learn how to get over being embrassed. Remember all of the charcters in this book are bugs!

Brought back memories from when my children were little. Had to get it for grandchildren to enjoy. Enjoy having two books in one.

The two Buggville stories contained in this novel Topsy-Turvy book are wonderful. Both Cooty-Doo and Crick-ette come to terms with challenges that make them more mature bugs. These are great lessons for children. My only caveat is that some of the language is at a higher learning level, e.g., "menacing," "ramshackle," "occasional," "rousing," etc. Overall, the illustrations are fantastic. I think that kids will love this book, especially with an older reader to help them.

This book arrived and was just like new. I had a set of these books that were paperback when my children were small. They remembered me reading them and now they are having children so I wanted to find another set so both of my children could read them to their children.

Great book for kids ages 2+, and two stories in one binding is wonderful the art work allows discussion about the story, and I was read these as a child.

More About the Author

Stephen Cosgrove has always been a self-starter.

"When I can't get somebody to do it the way that I know it should be done, I usually do it myself. There is no glory in being a one-man band, but when you want to dance and there isn't any music, you best pull out your kazoo and start humming." In 1974 when he couldn't find a publisher to do his books the way he envisioned them, he founded Serendipity Press and became author, publisher, sales manager, and after 4 years sold 2 million copies.

In 1978 he merged his fledgling publishing company with P/S/S and focused his efforts as a writer. For the next decade he wrote over 70 Serendipity books and countless other value-based fantasy stories.

Stephen was born and raised in the Northwest (both Washington and Idaho). After graduating from Borah High School in Boise, Idaho, he attended college in the Midwest and although he had a passion for writing and storytelling he never held hope that a career would ensue.

In 1973 while working as a vice-president of a leasing company he attempted to buy his newborn daughter, Jennifer, a book. What he was looking for was a fun-to-read story that contained a subtle message of some sort. What he found instead was a plethora of expensive hardcover books that had little of the content that he was looking for. He got out his 'kazoo' and wrote his first stories. Teaming with a Seattle-born illustrator, Robin James, Stephen went on to create four titles that became the foundation of the Serendipity series: The Dream Tree, Serendipity, Wheedle on the Needle, and the Muffin Dragon. Stephen designed the books for manufacture as original paperback books, "'books that people can afford to buy.' The books were sent to a major New York publisher and delightfully the publisher quickly responded that they wished to publish the books. They did, although, balk at the, then un-heard of concept, of an original, inexpensive paperback. The New York publisher was resolute on the paperback issue and, in the on-going negotiations Stephen commented that if necessary he would publish them himself. The publisher laughed saying that would be next to impossible. Undaunted Stephen began to hum. Within 3 months Serendipity Press was born and the rest, as they say, is history.

To date Stephen Cosgrove has written over 300 books. He is currently his first Y/A fantasy series, Diary of an Angel. You can get a sneak peek at http://www.diaryofanangel.com.
