Travel Bug Crafternoon
Meet the duo behind The Travel Bug picture book and have a Travel-Bug-crafternoon this school holidays!
A strange little bug doesn’t know who he is or where he’s from. Even his name is a mystery. So he sets off to seek answers. He journeys the world meeting wonderful creatures, seeing amazing sights and eating delicious food. Adventures he has, but still no one knows what insect he is. Maybe, just maybe, the path he is on is the answer he seeks.
