Jen Carney – The Accidental Diary of B.U.G.

Author and illustrator Jen Carney wrote the B.U.G. series to celebrate diverse – and perhaps slightly bonkers – families. In this episode, she talks with Nikki Gamble about the importance of adopted and fostered children being visible in books for children and introduces us to the world of B.U.G.

About B.U.G series
Meet Billie Upton Green and her VERY accidental diary – and don’t you DARE call her B.U.G!
