The 12 Bugs of Christmas: A Pop-up Christmas Counting Bookby David A. Carter
What could be better than one Bug of Christmas? Twelve of them! Bug fans of all ages will get in the spirit and join in the holiday fun with this pop-up extravaganza!
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyFans of Carter's Bugs in a Box series get more of what they like in this pop-up parody as a nimble troupe of nonsensical bugs upends a familiar Christmas carol. As in the previous books, each spread reveals another gaily wrapped box; inside each box is a new bug surprise, from a "fruitcake bug" grinning in a pear tree and "eight popcorn bugs a-popping." The grand finale--a dozen "angel bugs" dangling from a full-size tabletop ornament--is an eye-popper; aside from that feat, there's not much new here. Ages 2-5. (Oct.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Bobbie CombsGet ready for giggles from the whole family when they read and play with these clever popup books from David Carter.
Children's Literature - Marilyn CourtotCarter takes the popular Twelve Days of Christmas to new heightsliterallywith his pop-out, pop-up bug creations. It starts with a Fruitcake Bug in a pear treeno partridge hereand flies through the Twelve days until we encounter a dozen Angel Bugs a-rising. Kids who have trouble remembering the sequences in the original tune will delight in this version and undoubtedly get the sequence right every time. Each page has a beautiful box all nicely wrapped just waiting for those little ones to lift the flap and see what pops up. Carter, like Sabuda, is a master of the pop-up craft. For those kids who are curious about the construction of pop-ups, Carter's book The Elements of Pop-Up is not to be missed. The 12 Bugs of Christmas is a book that will fit into little hands and one that will stand up to considerable use. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
