Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Toni Jourdan
Science can be fun for some people, but everybody loves a good joke. Page after page we learn great facts about the insect/bug world. Then on each corresponding page are a couple of rib-tickling science-based jokes making this a real page turner. Did you know that all insects are bugs, but that not all bugs are necessarily insects? It all depends on body parts, legs, wings, compound eyes and any combination of the many mentioned. Bugs have been around far longer than humans. We are talking about hundreds of millions of years. This is because of their adaptability. They can live on the highest of mountains and the deepest of caves. They can withstand searing heat and freezing cold. Plus, they eat all kinds of weird and sometimes gross things, from plants, and small fish to rotting dung and even your blood and skin. Ew! My favorite fact was that female scorpions, who have been around for over 400 million years, hide their eggs away inside their bodies for as long as a year. When they do give birth, they have as many as one hundred baby scorpions at a time! Then the mom lets them ride around on her back until they can survive on their own. In the back of the book is a glossary and a few book and internet suggestions. The best part of the back of the book is where you get taught how to write jokes, step-by-step. I was glad I wasn't a centipede since Stewart's jokes pulled your leg quite a few times. Reviewer: Toni Jourdan
