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.
