ERNEST & REBECCA #3 “Grandpa Bug”
Guillaume Bianco, writer
Antonello Dalena, artist
Rebecca is a vivacious 6-year-old girl whose best friend happens to be a germ named Ernest. He’s not only Rebecca’s best friend — he’s also her partner in mischief, adventure companion, and confidant. In this third volume of the award-winning series, Rebecca and her older sister Coralie are sent to spend the summer in the countryside with their grandparents, away from their mother and father, without Ernest. Rebecca is lost and scared without her friend, but things begin to change when she meets a dog named Missile and her “Grandpa Bug,” both of whom want nothing more than to be her friend.

Papa Smurf catches wind of the plot, and begins to create a potion that will enable them to turn the giant, nicknamed “Bigmouth,” against Gargamel. But when Bigmouth stumbles into the Smurfs village, the potion isn’t ready, and the Smurfs must distract the hungry giant, or meet an untimely end inside its belly.

Powered by deep percussion-based music, this style is unlike anything they’ve ever tried before. While the girls enjoy their new art form, problems at home and in the classroom threaten to cause them to have to stop taking their dance classes. Can the girls balance their studies and their extracurricular activities, or will they have to give up dancing for good?
