Never Bug a Bear is a book about preserving and protecting animal habit. A delightful bug named Humphrey is first seen under a magnifying glass, and readers are then asked to find Humphrey in different animal habitats using the clues he left under the glass.

Teaches children about giving wild animals space. Ages: four to eight. Featuring the engaging, and sometimes humourous illustrations of Linden Wentzloff and the comical poems of Carol McTavish.

Review - 'Canmore author and teacher Carol McTavish continues her mission to educate kids and adults to respect animal habitat in Never Bug a Bear, her fourth book. Like her previous books In the Path of Great Bear, Magic in the Mountains and Where Wolves are Wild, this latest children's book celebrates the mountain environment and the animals that live there. Each page takes the reader on a tour of a different animal habitat, providing facts and details on everything from food sources to sleeping patterns. Humphrey the "tourist" bug is the book's narrator, popping up on each page (and providing an interactive tool as readers are asked to 'spot' him in the animal's habitat). The illustrations are beautiful, and clever verses keep the lessons lighthearted.' - By Pamela Fieber, Calgary Herald.
