Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2
As in his Go Away, Big Green Monster! (Little, Brown, 2005), Emberley gradually assembles, via die cuts, a mean and scary "Big Bad Bullybug" from outer space who threatens to bite, pinch, and tickle itty-bitty baby bugs. Luckily for the small fliers, a human with a huge sneaker is willing to do away with the pink-polka-dotted meanie. The cobalt blue backgrounds create a grand contrast for the electric greens, oranges, and yellows that dominate the bug parts. Despite the visual panache of the giant foot, it seems a shame that the bullybug couldn't learn a lesson instead of being "skwooshed!"

Kirkus Reviews
In a return to the concept that produced the brilliant Go Away Big Green Monster (1993), Emberley offers a new character to stand up to. Once again, a series of die-cut pages are the main feature (even the cover cuts away to reveal the title). Lightning bugs fearfully herald the arrival of the menacing monster in a round spaceship in the dark of night. The background of all the book's pages are a deep blue, and the minimal figures are in simple shapes, mostly circles and half-circles. As anticipation grows, die-cut pages reveal more and more of the beast, who declares his menacing intentions in bold orange text: "I have two nasty pinchers for pinching itty-bitty baby bugs," etc. But here it is not the lightning bugs who save themselves, but a big powder-blue sneaker, spanning two pages whose page-turn does to the bullybug what most sneakers do: "SKWOOSH!" The building of suspense should appeal to very young listeners, who also might be attracted to the accessibility of the minimal text and who will welcome a new Monster to the neighborhood.

    Great book for teaching skills

    Great book for working with kids on bullying issues. I have to be somewhat selective and not use with children who may take the stomping of the bully more literally.

    Fun to read

    I recently bought this book for my 1-year-old grandaughter, and her mother loved reading it to her. I got a kick out of reading it in the store and looking at the pictures. Now I'm buying a copy to donate to the SMART program at school.
