"I hate bugs," confesses William Joyce. So why on earth has he written and illustrated a book called The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs?

As for the bugs, he explains, "I find them enchanting as fictional characters, but in the real world, doodlebugs and ants are about the only thing I care for, and perhaps an occasional moth or butterfly. But wasps, spiders, and all that stuff drive me crazy."

Alice Cary is a mother and writer in Groton, Massachussetts.
