Blah Blah Bug by, Jocelyn Ting – Age 6
“Blah Blah Bug talks, and talks, and talks…”
We think he must have bored his friend to sleep!
Melonlys Bug by, Alyssa Kleiser – Age 6
“Melonlys is a creepy looking bug that sleeps through the day and becomes active at night. It is very tiny, so you can see it only with a magnifying glass. It lives inside the flowers and sucks the nectar with its weird nose.
Melonlys has 2 bell-shaped antenna on the head and 6 long legs that look like watermelon slices at the bottom. It can flap its strong wings at a very high speed that produces the smell of watermelon. This bug also has bright patterns on the body that help it escape from other insects.
Females lay colorful eggs that attach to the long spikes at the end of her body. She carries the eggs til they are ready to hatch.”
Uni-Poly by, Jiayi Li – Age 8
