Confectionaries II

Even more choices!

The May Bug (above), by the way, is a much beloved/hated beetle in Europe.

"Once abundant throughout Europe and a major pest in the periodical years of 'mass flight', it had been nearly eradicated in the middle of the 20th century through extensive use of pesticides and has even been locally exterminated in many regions. However, since an increase in regulation of pest control beginning in the 1980s, its numbers have started to grow again." ~ Wikipedia

"Max and Moritz is a German language illustrated story in verse. This highly inventive, blackly humorous tale, told entirely in rhymed couplets, was written and illustrated by Wilhelm Busch and published in 1865." ~ Wikipedia
