Jim Panzee, star of the #1 New York Times bestselling Grumpy Monkey series is very grumpy when his best friend Norman is too busy with his ever-expanding bug collection to play.

When Norman shows Jim his pet butterfly, Butterfly-Butterfly, Jim is suitably impressed, especially when Norman spouts butterfly facts.  Then Norman adds Beetle-Beetle 1 and Beetle-Beetle 2 and so many more to his menagerie. Now Norman spends all his time feeding and caring for his pets and doesn’t have time to play.  Grumpy Monkey Jim feels left out.  And when all the bugs have babies, Jim declares that Norman has too many and persuades his friend to set them free. But then Norman sees a ladybug…

Simple bug facts, easy-to-read words, and dynamic and humor-filled illustrations will lead young readers to a lifelong love of books.

Step 2 readers use basic vocabulary and short sentences to tell engaging stories. They are perfect for children 4-6 who recognize familiar words and can sound out new words with help.
