About the Author

Jennifer Angus is a professor in the Design Studios department at the University of Wisconsin--Madison. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for her art, including Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council, and Wisconsin Arts Board grants. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin. This is her first novel.


"Angus, an artist who creates installations using bugs, excels with her insect characters. They liven things up with their often-humorous commentary and fierce loyalty to Henri." Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 2013
"Debuting author Angus builds this fantastical premise with well-placed scenes in which Henri's own deep skepticism cleverly encourages the reader to join willingly in his discoveries. . . .accessible for new fantasy readers while offering something different to established fantasy fans." Booklist, April 2013
"This book is well thought out and a joy to read. Children will find Henri and all of his insect friends to be relatable characters. It is a grand adventure, one full of excitement and plenty of questions to keep readers engaged." School Library Journal, February 2013
"Roald Dahl meets Franz Kafka in this charming and unpredictable debut novel, which is set in the 1890s. . . .With respect and clever characterization, she makes fleas and other creepy-crawlies downright sympathetic, leaving readers to rethink their relationship with the insect world." Publishers Weekly, January 14, 2013
