More About Stephen Cosgrove, Stephen Cosgrove & Stephen; Robin James (Illustrations) Cosgrove
Stephen Cosgrove is one of the best-selling children's book authors of all time. His writing career began in 1973. At the time, he was working as vice-president of an investment company. Shopping at bookstores for his three-year-old daughter, he was frustrated by the dearth of fun-to-read picture books that also convey positive values. Consequently, he decided to write his own stories. Teaming with Seattle illustrator Robin James, Cosgrove went on to create four titles that became the foundation of his best-selling Serendipity series, which have sold over 80 million copies worldwide. Since then, he has written more than 300 books, some under his own name and others using pseudonyms, ranging from picture books to young adult thrillers. His complete works have sold close to 100 million copies. Mr. Cosgrove has been honored by Idaho State Legislators for career achievement and has won the Coors Lumen Award for family values. He is also the winner of multiple Children's Choice Awards. He lives in Austin, TX. Robin James is a gifted illustrator and a native of the Pacific Northwest. She has loved art and animals all her life and has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil. Through the years, she has created a wide variety of artwork from animal portraits to wildlife paintings and has illustrated over 75 children's books, and is published worldwide. She lives in Snohomish, WA.

Reviews - What do customers think about Hucklebug?
Okay for elementary level Jan 4, 2007
I bought this one because I wanted my own copy as a teacher. But it does not match the original from the library. That made it a little difficult to use. I work with 2nd graders and the new copy had higher vocabulary and more complex sentences.
Still a very good storyline and message.
Richard's remarkable review Dec 17, 2005
In Huckelbug the Mayor gets Barry in trouble, because he had to work! One day, in the present Barry runs away to get out of trouble. Barry packs his sneakers, cold water, shirts, and food. Barry didn't have a good time at the amazing place he found. Will Barry go back, or will he stay at the place and not work? This book is for every age. If you ever get a chance to buy this book buy it!!!
A Classic that gets better with Age! Oct 8, 2005
This is a wonderful and underated book from the Serendepity series. The older I get, the more I like these books. My son loves them. I don't think your child's book collection can be complete without this.
My childhood favorite Nov 30, 2001

If you're having trouble disciplining your child to do chores, this book may have an answer for you. Hucklebug is a young bug who runs away from home to escape his chores, but he soon learns that he's getting more than he bargained for. Enchanting, colorful, and full of smiles.
