Summary:  Beetles Rhino-B and Stag-B are the closest of friends and enjoy exploring the world and having adventures.  They occasionally interact with humans and larger animals, but most of their expeditions take place in the world of insects, including spiders, termites, and bees.  There are some exciting moments and close calls, but they always manage to help each other make it through, and along the way pause to reflect on friendship, being present, and life in general.  Includes beetle facts and instructions for drawing both Rhino-B and Stag-B. 272 pages; grades 2-5.

Pros:  This graphic collection of stories is sure to delight a wide range of readers, while giving them the opportunity to ponder some of life’s deeper questions.  The last page delivers the happy news that volume 2 will be coming out in the spring of 2021.

Cons:  I prefer one long graphic novel to a collection of shorter stories.
