Bugs in the garden? Or are they alien invaders? A curious child compares small garden creatures to what he knows of space invaders. Antennas? Shiny armor and helmets? Are these Earth dwellers or something ‘out of this world’? Creepy crawlers abound in wacky, far–out colored pencil illustrations.

Lynn Huggins–Cooper loves bugs! Growing up in Sussex, England, her childhood was spent on “small game safaris” in the garden or at the beach. When she was a teacher, Lynn's classroom was an Aladdin's cave of bug tanks, tadpole bowls, critter cages and vivariums. Lynn's favorite thing to do in the garden is to lie in the grass watching the insect world march by. Lynn Huggins–Cooper lives in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England.

Bonnie Leick grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin. Bonnie broke into the world of children's books by selling a piece of artwork at the SCBWI's 2003 art auction in New York. She illustrated her first children's picture book, Alien Invaders/Invasores extraterrestre, for Raven Tree press. Bonnie Leick lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
