Bumble & Snug and the Angry Pirates

Mark Bradley

A feel good comic book aimed at 5+, newly confident readers, readers who like visuals or anyone who likes a warm, funny story featuring monsters & pirates.

Bumble & Snug are best friend bugbops who live in Bugbopolis. Bumble is a shape changing excitable bugbop. Snug is a gentle, anxious bugbop. They decide to go for a picnic in the countryside. This doesn’t go to plan, but luckily they have their emergency survival kit including kazoo and glitter to help them… With jeopardy in the form of pirates and sea monsters the duo work together to solve the potential disasters and save the day. 

As well as being a great story there are themes of friendship, working together and coping with different feeling. Plus, with a most excellent guide at the back of the book on how to draw bugbops this book is guaranteed to be a favourite.
