The story is adventurous and interesting, and the illustrations were delightful.
I liked how the ‘lessons’ in healthy eating, bullying and discrimination were worked into the story without being preachy!

Purchased recently, this brightly colored cover smiled at me from my kindle, so my late night reading began. I could picture the story as Girlie tries to rescue her best friend, Grassi, kidnapped by the wasps. Girlie and a centipede named Pedi form an alliance, and together, they discover the wasps have kidnapped other insects to do their work for them. The wasps have grown lazy and mean, and after speaking with the understanding Queen wasp, Girlie and her centipede friend embark on a journey to another hive to discuss the problem and find a solution so Grassi and the other captives can be freed.
I loved this book. There are lessons to be learned–stand up for yourself, accept people as they are, and admit your mistakes. The visual of a centipede having to put shoes on his one hundred feet each day brought laughter. Excellent. 5 stars
