Mr. Bristle's Nap

Book 1 of the Backyard Critters Adventure Series


Once upon a time, not too long ago, in a neighborhood like yours, there lived a caterpillar—not just any caterpillar—an Oleander Caterpillar. His name was Mr. Bristle. One day Mr. Bristle was very tired and decided to go on a trip to a faraway window to take a long nap. Along his journey, he meets up with a Raven, a Queen Ant, a Wasp, and a Wren. When Mr. Bristle finally gets to take his nap, something amazing happens! Do you want to know what happened next? Come with me and let’s go on a journey with Mr. Bristle and the Backyard Critters Adventures to find out!!

About the Author

Hi. My name is Le’Mar. (pronounced: Lay-mar) I am a new author. My book journey all began with the pandemic. It has been horrible. I have lost very good friends as I’m sure you all have. But as with most things, if you look at it from all angles, there is a positive side. For me, it’s been time to rest and as they say, “stop and smell the roses.” In a very real sense I stopped and began exploring my world; planting and observing the beautiful and interesting creation surrounding me in my own yard. One day, I was looking out the window when a weird-looking orange bristly caterpillar crawled up. I named him Mr. Bristle. I was delighted to see the miracle happening right in front of me as he move his head from side to side creating his cocoon. I watched him for days to see what changes would happened until he finally emerged into a unique creature so unlike his former self. Amazing! This was the inspiration for my book, “Mr. Bristle’s Nap.” As you read it, remember it’s loosely based on a true story. 😉
