Love Bugs

A Bug-Eyed View of Romance

The author-illustrator of the best-selling Bird, Egg, Feather, Nest blends her compellingly realistic watercolor artwork with the nature theme of insects, to create a delightful, unique celebration of love and romance.

You don’t have to be an entomologist to appreciate the wonderfully realistic watercolor insect images found inside Maryjo Koch’s Love Bugs. Offering a “bug-eyed view of love and courtship,” Love Bugs presents more than 25 images of dancing dragonflies and bouncing beetles paired with romantic prose.

Lovebugs, speckled bugs, grasshoppers, dragonflies, butterflies, and more are compellingly captured by the stroke of Koch’s paintbrush and presented alongside humorous and thoughtful entries, such as:

* You can’t buy love, but presents make a nice first impression.

* Opposites attract because they’re complementary.

* Being in love is like friendship set to music.
