The Travel Bug
In a land of long grasses,
where small insects crawl,
lived a strange little bug,
with no name at all.
A strange little bug doesn’t know who he is or where he’s from. Even his name is a mystery. So he sets off to seek answers. He journeys the world meeting wonderful creatures, seeing amazing sights and eating delicious food. Adventures he has, but still no one knows what insect he is. Maybe, just maybe, the path he is on is the answer he seeks.
The Travel Bug is a gently philosophical picture book about identity, fate, the joy of travelling, and the discovery of kindness and kinship across cultures. Written by author Benjamin Gilmour and with fabulously detailed illustrations by James Gulliver Hancock, this story of a little bug with an identity crisis and his journey is beautifully read by actor Kamil Ellis and will warm everyone's heart.
