Chuck Whipplethorp has a lot to live up to. He is Charles Whipplethorp the Fifth after all, named after his seriously cool ancestors who were explorers, soldiers, and scientists. But one day Chuck looks at his stay-at-home dad, huddled over his laptop, and asks: “Dad…when I grow up, am I going to be as boring as you?” With a little help from his nurturing father, Chuck finds his own source of strength and individuality through creativity, and helps him to discover that “greatness” comes in many forms.

The Great Whipplethorp Bug Collection offers a multigenerational family portrait with humor and tons of heart, while unpacking gender roles and acknowledging the universal hope young readers feel to belong and make a mark in the world.
