Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
David Carter is having a buggy birthday bash in this whimsical pop-up book, similar in style and format to his bestselling The 12 Bugs of Christmas and Bed Bugs. With eye-catching paper engineering elements sure to put any young reader in a party mood, Carter's fiesta includes a trove of Birthday Bugs: smiley-faced Balloon Bugs, Party Hat Bug (kids can take out the party hat and wear it), Birthday Worms in a ribboned box, and a hilarious Root Beer Float Bug that comes out when you flip down the birthday box. But Carter's real treat comes at the end, when readers can use an envelope full of Birthday Candle Bugs to decorate a glorious birthday cake, making a pop-up surprise kids will be sure to giggle over. With simple, zippy illustrations and even lines on the back cover to inscribe names for gift giving, this googly-eyed extravaganza is the perfect way for David Carter's legions of fans to celebrate their birthdays year after year. Matt Warner
Publishers Weekly
Just for fun, the latest bug-infested celebration, Birthday Bugs: A Pop-up Party by David A. Carter features a present on every page. Each can be untied, opened and otherwise unwrapped to see the bugs within: Balloon Bugs, a Smoocher Bug-and bug candles that readers can insert into a climactic buggy birthday cake. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
It is hard to keep a series expanding, especially within the geometrically restricted parameters of something like "Bugs in a Box." David A. Carter gives the concept and his pop-up bugs the old college try yet again in this seventeenth (!) sequel. The results are "balloon bugs," a party hat carefully stowed in an elegant envelope, and candles to insert in a pop-up birthday cake. His best efforts explode into a very mod "Smoocher Bug" with come hither lips, and an even more enticing "Root Beer Float Bug." While his "Birthday Worms" in an apple are charming, they caused the teensiest squirm of squeamishness in this sometime bug-handicapped reader—which means, of course, that youngsters will be delighted with them. The book is as sturdy as its antecedents, and Carter's paper mechanics are as ingenious as possible within the constraints of size and format. 2004, Little Simon, Ages 3 to 7.
