A teeny tiny corner of a backyard plays host to whimsical fascination and regrowth when two damselflies encounter a baby flower shoot and pose the ever-important question, Du Iz Tak? This 2017 Caldecott Honor Book blends magnificently detailed illustrations with an invented bug language to show how a diverse community of insects cope with the unknown, work together, and experience the cycle of life beginning, ending, and starting again.

Du Iz Tak?

Detailed illustrations and a playfully invented bug language invite readers to imagine the dramatic possibilities to be found in the natural world of a humble backyard garden.
