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

Charming... Jun 27, 2000
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.
