Comic: Joey Fly Private Eye in Creepy Crawly Crime

Comic: Joey Fly Private Eye in Creepy Crawly Crime

Joey Fly Private EyeWhen Flick travels to the city in Bug’s Life to find help for his colony, I think he could have met Joey Fly there – maybe in the bar where he meets the circus performers! (Joey Fly would have known right off the bat though, that the circus performers were NOT tough bugs! He’s got street smarts Flick doesn’t.) In Creepy Crawly Crime Joey is visited by the beautiful butterfly Delilah. During a party, one of Delilah’s possessions disappeared and she wants Joey to find it…AND she wants to know which one of her friends took it. Joey does what detectives do, he visits the crime scene and begins interviewing possible subjects…ladybugs, mosquitoes, etc. Something’s fishy and Joey Fly will find out what it is! This one is a comic book – make sure you click on the Look Inside link to get a look at Joey Fly’s world.  Author: Aaron Reynolds

Aaron Reynolds also writes about Tiger Moth, an insect Ninja. And Joey Fly isn’t the only insect on the case, try Ace Lacewing, Spider Kane or Bug Muldoon for more insect detecting.

Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls: Best Friends and Drama Queens

4th grader Allie is excited when she finds out there is a new girl in her class. The new girl’s name is Cheyenne and she’s from Canada – which makes her sound kind of exotic and interesting. She’s interesting all right. And bossy. And mean. Cheyenne immediately collects a group of friends – her clique – and labels anyone she hasn’t chosen “immature”. Then she starts a kissing game at recess and begins insisting that the boys and girls pair up and start “going with” each other. Allie wants to know…what does “going with” even mean? Dealing with Cheyenne, and having the courage to stand up to her, helps Allie add another rule to her list of school survival tips: “Just because something is popular doesn’t mean it’s good.” Anybody who has ever had to deal with a controlling, bossy mean girl will cheer outloud for Allie and her friends.
