Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Carter takes the popular Twelve Days of Christmas to new heights—literally—with his pop-out, pop-up bug creations. It starts with a Fruitcake Bug in a pear tree—no partridge here—and 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
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Fans 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.)
