Synopsis

It's not easy living with your parents. Just ask Little Buggy. He is so mad at Big Buggy that he's running away from home. With the help of two ants, Little Buggy finds a cozy shoe where he can sleep, some food to eat, and even a cough drop in case he gets sick. But when the sky turns dark and his friends must leave, Little Buggy wonders if home isn't so bad after all.
Popular illustrator Kevin O'Malley has created another hilarious and emotionally resonant Little Buggy adventure, perfect for kids who are eager to test their independence--and for parents who are helping them handle it.
