BUFO by Robert McClung


Email this review


A good portrait of a pretty special character- this helpful garden toad- as any gardener or marauder knows. Robert McClung's simple text and finely detailed brown and green pictures tell the life cycle of this insect consumer. From tadpole to toad, Bufo's traits emerge,- an ever-flipping tongue, an exuding poison that thwarts threats to his safety, and so on. These second and third grade true nature stories are popular and McClung manages to escape the obvious.
