Andy J. Smith thought about careers as a Walrus Wrangler, Intergalactic Spy, and Ghost Hunter but they didn't pan out. So Andy thought he'd try drawing silly pictures for a living. It turned out to be a great choice! Before getting into illustration, Andy worked on several graphic novels and now has added picture book illustrations to his portfolio. He promises there will be many more books!
The story is told in goofy rhymes that kids will find easy to memorize, and it is supplemented by extremely funny artwork by Andy J. Smith. There are lots of puns and word plays for the adults to enjoy. For example, when Freddie goes into the big city of the bugs, the businesses have names such as "Flies R Us" and "McMaggot's." And when Freddie tries to open a trash can so that he can survive on garbage, a bug pops out who looks like Oscar the Grouch.
For a fun book that manages to teach the same lesson as its more sophisticated biblical counterpart, this one is a winner! Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
