"Bug and Mulch - A Contemporary Tale of Woe" is a picture book for grown ups.
It is the rags-to-riches (and alas, riches-to-rags) tale of Bug and Mulch, a couple of slacker dudes.
An adorable dog named Mulch and a sweet cow named Mildew frolic in the narrative landscape as well.
All in all: a cautionary tale with a heart and plenty of giggles.
Written and illustrated by Azita Houshiar.
