Bugs are for the birds!

Lisbon is hungry and it's hard to wait for dinner. When her animal friends try to help her find something tasty to eat, the real the problems begin! Join Lisbon on her funny misadventures.

Each beautiful illustration is designed to inspire the imaginations of children. An activity page at the end of the book allows for more fun as they search for special items in the illustrations.

This version of I Don't Want to Eat Bugs has been designed specifically for ebook with larger text for easy reading. While this is a great read-aloud book for parents, teachers, and other adults to share with children, we have chosen fonts that are similar to the way children form letters for easy recognition as they begin to read on their own. The print book is also available in 8.5" x 11" format.

Author's Note:

I Don't Want to Eat Bugs was written for my daughter, who was two when I wrote this story and didn't like salad, but now she's four and a half and loves it--if I give her plenty of salad dressing! (But don't worry--this isn't a book about eating salad.) Of course birds, cats, and dogs have a very different idea of what's good to eat, but through this fun adventure, Lisbon learns there is also food meant just for her--and it's good, especially compared with all the offerings from her animal friends.

My daughter and I privately call this book the "Ice Cream Story" (she LOVES ice cream so there had to be ice cream involved), and now whenever something funny happens, she says, "We should write a new ice cream story about that."

And we have! I Don't Want to Eat Bugs is the first book in a planned series called Lisbon's Misadventures. I've written the next three books in the series, and Tim Petersen is hard at work creating the illustrations. Tim is obviously a fabulous artist, and I'm excited to be working with him.

Enter at Your Own Risk. Writer at Work. Under the name Rachel Branton, she writes romance, romantic suspense, and women's fiction. Rachel also writes urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and science fiction under the name Teyla Branton.
