Editorial Reviews

Criticas
PreS-Gr 2-If bugs were your lunch, what would you be? That's the interesting premise of this beautifully illustrated bilingual book. Each page details a different bug-eating animal, such as a spider, bat, shrew, and toad. The original English text rhymes, and the tricky job of translating it into poetic Spanish is very well done. The surprising ending, in which it is revealed that humans also eat insects, will delight children, especially those who love nature. An excellent selection for libraries and bookstores.Rebecca Thatcher Murcia, Akron, PA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

Margery Facklam never gave much thought to eating bugs until she was served mealworm fritters and cricket tarts at a party at the Buffalo Museum of Science. After receiving a birthday gift of mealworm brittle, she was hooked and was inspired to write BUGS FOR LUNCH. Margery has authored more than thirty books, including THE BIG BUG BOOK (Little, Brown), and I EAT DINNER (Boyds Mills Press).
