The other bugs began to tease. However, Rex ignored them and continued to gaze upon bright, blue Hydrangeas. “What a daydreamer,” said Sammie the Slug. “He’s such a geek!” laughed Willie the Potato Bug. “Don’t pay them any attention,” said Lady Bug Sue. “They are just jealous because they aren’t as smart as you.” Rex, the Nerdy Centipede, loves nature, especially flowers. Some of his friends think he is weird. Rex shows us that sometimes that not being popular is okay, that it is wonderful to be unique.
