Illustrated with vibrant, original art and amazing macro-photography, these books are all told in a catchy rhyme that is as delightful to read as the pages are to behold. 

Zack is just like any other boy, looking for adventure with his sidekick Flash, and in these stories, they find it all around them, lurking in spider webs, hiding in flowers, and creeping under rocks.  Each book is dedicated to a different creature, and each one tells us a little more about Zack, his life in Inclement, and the friends that show up to share in his buggy experiences.  Summertime FairyAnd what’s more, his friends also have stories to tell!  In Inclement, just as in all towns all over the world, the children each have their own unique tales, and they want to tell them to whoever will listen!  So, keep your ears and eyes out for more Bug Summer Books, as well as other Inclement Tales, and follow along with Zack, Flash, and their friends as they introduce us to Inclement, IOliver Matsudaowa and the amazing things that happen there!
