Vinny the Bug Man: The Journey Begins by Chet Spiewak

ISBN: 9780978582715 - CWS Studios (2007)
Reviewed by Ian McCurley (age 13) for Reader Views (11/07)

The story begins when Vinny Mazola gets a job with his exterminator uncle, Guy.  While exterminating at a government research lab, Vinny accidently shrinks himself down to the size of a bug while using his Bug Whacker 3000.  After being thrown out the window, captured by ants and brought before the queen, Vinny is thrown in jail for bad humor.  Vinny escapes to team up with an aphid, Lester, and they set out together on a journey to recover the Magical Seed from the tarantulas. 
This is Chet Spiewak's first book in the "Vinny the Bug Man" graphic novel series.  The book is full of quirky humor and colorful characters such as the oblivious main character, Vinny.  It is perfect for the target age group.
"Vinny The Bug Man" is for children ages 6 to 10 who enjoy reading about bugs and have an atrocious sense of humor.
