Grades k-9English Language Arts, Health, Science, HorticultureEnglish

During a trip to the local bug museum, Chase, his sister, Amelia, and their friend, Sophie, are sucked through a mysterious portal and dumped into a “forest” filled with insects of unusual size.

Armed only with super soakers of bug spray and Amelia’s impressive wealth of bug knowledge, the trio must work together to weed out the “pests” before the canola farmer sprays his field. This is Chase’s most thrilling adventure yet!
