The Bedbug Who Wouldn't  Bite
ISBN 1-877219-95-9
Price of the entire package: $19.95 + $6 s&h

Bedbug is the invention of author Melody Rhodes and this first book in her series is titled: THE BEDBUG WHO WOULDN'T BITE.
Bedbug toy is the creation of Carolyn Ann Aish. The photograph illustrations have been done by Edward Aish.
THE BEDBUG WHO WOULDN'T BITE comes in an organza bag with a toy bedbug.

THE BOOK: THE BEDBUG WHO WOULDN'T BITE is a book approximately the size of a CD case - 5.5 inches x 4.75 inches --- or in centimeters, 14 x 12. The book has a thick laminated cover with pages of thin card, 120gsm. The book has a thin spine and is hand-bound with strong ribbon and fuzzy yarn.

THE TOY BEDBUG: Made of bright orange fake fur, glued with strong, flexible, non-toxic glue to six pipe-cleaner legs that have been carefully crimped with pliers at the feet ends. This toy is recommended for children over 4 years old. Under 4's should have supervision by adults because of the small eyes and choking parts if put in the mouth. In the case that an eye does come off, it can be glued on again.

THE BAG: The organza fabric of the bag is not strong, therefore care must be taken putting the toy and book in and out of the bag. Again, this is not for children under 4 years old without adult help.

IF I COULD...I WOULD by Carolyn Ann Aish

Only 12 pages, with very basic black and white drawings to match the text. Final statements are that there is ALWAYS a place in your home and heart, anytime they want to come, to drop in or to stay awhile. And the answer, that the one leaving WILL return often.

"I love it, and will come back to buy more of YOUR books. Thank You so much! :-)))) "

A beautiful little book, 18 pages including cover - a song in a greetings card-book for someone special - someone who needs encouraging, perhaps in hospital, or ill at home. "Angels watch over you" wherever you are, no matter whether you are very young, or very old, or in-between.
