When a young boy accidentally swallows poor Buz , a bug, along with his morning cereal, he's prescribed two pills to remedy the situation. Little does he know what is going on inside! In his award-winning signature style, Richard Egielski invents an ingenious behind-the-scenes adventure of two keystone cop-like pills in pursuit of a bug inside a human body. Buz eventually makes his escape, only to discover he has caught a bug of his own. On with the chase!

Richard Egielski, the illustrator of The Tub People and The Tub Grandfather, both by Pam Conrad, was the winner of the 1987 Caldecott Medal for his illustrations in Hey, Al. Both Buz and Jazper, which he wrote and illustrated, are New York Times Best Illustrated Books for Children. Mr. Egielski lives in Milford, NJ.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2?One morning, a boy eats a bug along with his cornflakes. As the brief narrative unfolds, viewers glimpse the creature's journey through the boy's body, the doctor's confirmation of the presence of a "bug," and the cops-and-robbers-like chase by the bumbling pills. Egielski makes effective use of double-page close-ups, interior and exterior perspectives, and page layout to build suspense and heighten dramatic impact. The pictures work well from a distance, so groups will enjoy them. The palette changes from fleshy pinks to shadowy blues as Buz moves away from the source of light. An abundance of white highlights on the pills and Buz creates the same shiny look used by the illustrator in Pam Conrad's The Tub People (HarperCollins, 1989), giving the characters a toylike quality. The little creature escapes, but not without catching?a germ. Guess what the doctor prescribes? This is probably not a title one will read again and again, but it is clever enough the first time through. Use it with Chris Van Allsburg's Two Bad Ants (Houghton, 1988) to portray unusual adventures from out-of-the-ordinary perspectives.?Wendy Lukehart, Dauphin County Library, Harrisburg, PA
