5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book 13 May 2016
By Barbara Chioffi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Purchased recently, this brightly colored cover smiled at me from my kindle, so my late night reading began. I could picture the story as Girlie tries to rescue her best friend, Grassi, kidnapped by the wasps. Girlie and a centipede named Pedi form an alliance, and together, they discover the wasps have kidnapped other insects to do their work for them. The wasps have grown lazy and mean, and after speaking with the understanding Queen wasp, Girlie and her centipede friend embark on a journey to another hive to discuss the problem and find a solution so Grassi and the other captives can be freed.

I loved this book. There are lessons to be learned--stand up for yourself, accept people as they are, and admit your mistakes. The visual of a centipede having to put shoes on his one hundred feet each day brought laughter. Excellent. 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved Girlie and the War of the Wasps! 30 April 2016

I loved this children's book. The adventure keeps you interested and the sketches are adorable. I really enjoyed how there were several lessons interwoven into this story without it seeming like it were "teaching" moments. There is no doubt that children of all ages will enjoy this book! Highly Recommended
4.0 out of 5 stars Adventurous and interesting 13 May 2016

A thoroughly enjoyable book, for children of all ages.

The story is adventurous and interesting, and the illustrations were delightful.
I liked how the 'lessons' in healthy eating, bullying and discrimination were worked into the story without being preachy!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great story. I will be looking forward to the ... 12 May 2016
By Maureen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I began this story with some reservations - but, I quickly changed my mind. What a great story. I will be looking forward to the next book in the series. It is so good to be able to read this type of story to a child even as young as 3, but it would be lovely as a 'starting to read' book as well. Well done.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great story 26 August 2016
By Wanda - Published on Amazon.com
This book is very good! I really enjoyed Girlie helping to rescue her friend and then go one step further to figure out how to help the wasps themselves. She is kind and smart. This book combines a fun adventure with a good message about friendship, helping others, and tolerance. I highly recommend it.
