Beatrice Alemanga returns with a follow up to the charming Bugs in a Blanket. What happens when the bugs venture out into the big, wide garden to find some new friends? This sturdy board book introduces children to lovable bugs who learn how to accept creatures they are initially afraid of. Author Beatrice Alemagna invented a whole new technique of illustration for this book using a felted wool technique and an amalgam of applique, fabrics and stitching. Ever since Little Fat Bug's birthday, the bugs in the blanket have been great friends. They are such great friends, and have spent so many hours playing together, in fact, that they are beginning to get bored of playing 'hug-a-bug' with each other. And so, at Little Fat Bug's suggestion, the bugs venture out into the garden to find new friends to play with. But will these bugs dare to make friends with creatures they have never seen before?
