Each Tiny Twisted Tale is about another weird, scary, wonderfully gruesome character, from people who eat bugs, to tiny toga-wearing goblins. Each book is packed with dozens of Calvin’s quirky illustrations.

Stuart The Bug Eating Man is about a man with an unusual

My 7 yr old thinks this book is hilarious. Whilst reading it he giggled and I said the equivalent of yuck, gross, disgusting, Ewwww and icky, especially when it came to Stuart drinking liquidized bugs.(*Shiver*)
It is the perfect book for children who love any kind of insect or bug and think things like boogers, slime and worm sandwiches are entertaining.
I count my son amongst those children, in fact he was highly interested in whether Stuart would be eating any really hairy spiders and if so did

Stuart liked eating bugs. The squirmier the better. Sadly, his family didn’t share his unusual taste. His wife wanted him to get a job but Stuart didn’t know what to do. He never went to school and he has no talent other than eating bugs. Stuart finally realizes that being himself and doing what he likes is the perfect answer (even if it is kind of gross).

I am not a fan of gross-out books, but somewhere in all the bug-eating in this book is a nice message about believing in yourself. There are i

Book number one of the Tiny Twisted Tales is Stuart The Bug Eating Man - a tale about Stuart who loves to eat bugs, any kind of bugs. He spends all day collecting the most awful and ugly insects and delights in chomping them down, accompanied by a glass of liquidized slug. Stuart's wife and children are horrified by his behaviour and just want him to get a job and be a normal husband and father. One day Stuart has a light-bulb moment and his idea allows him to carry on eating bugs, but also to p ...more

This story is not for the squeamish so it's perfect for primary aged children! Listening to my daughter reading to my son had my stomach churning as Stuart chomps his way through a range of insects. Reading it myself and seeing the illustrations made it worse!

Much to the disgust of his wife Harriet the eponymous Stuart just can't resist eating bugs and drinking slug juice... Each little verse in the story is accompanied by an appropriate cartoon with plenty of creepy crawlies.

My daughter is five almost six years old and she loves to read. When she was given Stuart The bug Eating Man she sat on the sofa and quietly read the book to herself and all I could hear was little chuckles coming from her every now and then.
The book is a rhyming book about Stuart who loves to eat bugs, the wriggly the better. His wife wants him to get a job and he comes up with a great idea, a pest control man.
This was a really funny little tale and a very quick read, brilliant for kids.

An hilarious book that will have most kids in fits of giggles as well as thinking Stuart should be on 'I'm A Celebrity'. The book also shows kids how to make use of their talent even if the rest of the world think its gross, not everyone is the same but some one will see your talent shine through. Kids we read this book with loved it, especially the boys.
