Author(s): Nina Laden
Ever since he was a wee mite (a termite, that is), Roberto has wanted to be an architect. Discouraged by his woodeating family and friends, he decides to follow his dream to the big, bug city. There he meets a slew of not-so-creepy, crawly characters who spark in him the courage to build a community for them all. With extraordinary collage illustrations and witty text, the creator of the bestselling Peek-a series, Nina Laden, brings to life a funny and inspirational story that will encourage readers of any age to build their dreams.
