Robert Stanek wrote the Bugville Critters books as bedtime stories for his children. The stories address real issues and challenges all children face as they start school, make friends, and learn about the world around them. The stories provide lessons about life, friendship, family, our world, the natural world of which we are all a part, and our environment. Robert Stanek's children have enjoyed hearing the tales of Buster, Lass, Cat, Barry, and all their friends for many years. As they got older, they urged Robert to bring his stories to life for other children to enjoy, and that is what he set out to do in 2004. The first Bugville Critters stories were published in 2007 to instant acclaim.
