Stuart The Bug Eating Man
The Tiny Twisted Tales are a collection of short stories and poems from the rather strange mind of Calvin Innes. Each Tiny Twisted Tale is about another weird, scary, wonderfully gruesome character, from people who eat bugs, to tiny toga-wearing goblins. Each book is packed with dozens of Calvin’s quirky illustrations. Stuart The Bug Eating Man is about a man with an unusual taste for all things creepy and crawly. He likes nothing better than munching on a centipede sandwich or guzzling down a tall frosty glass of liquidized slug. Unfortunately his family don’t share his taste in snacks.
