Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
David A. Carter adds to his popular paper-over-board pop-up series with Halloween Bugs: A Trick-or-Treat Pop-up. Readers lift flaps to trick-or-treat at a series of doors, from dusty and rusty to magical, all of which conceal inventively engineered "insects." The finale features a pop-up graveyard with headstones bidding farewell to the likes of "Mosquito Joe who tried to nibble my big toe." Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Fantasy entomologist Carter has created a new set of bugs to intrigue his current fans and gain new followers. This time, he has drawn a series of doors: dusty, red, magical, whimsical, enchanted, and rusty, behind which can be found a most unusual litany of bugs: a "luscious little Lollipop Bug, a "Bat—in-the-Hat bug," and the "Great Pumpkin Bug," to name a few. The last page pops up to show the ghost and ghoul bugs in the graveyard. Be sure to read all the epitaphs including that of the snail, flea, mosquito and the old lady who swallowed a fly. Early primary grade children will enjoy the little jokes. It's a small book. There are only six doors and the graveyard here. Children will groan and giggle as they discover the surprises behind the doors. The size makes it more appropriate for one-to-one or small group sharing. This has a familiar look to it since it is part of the "A Bugs in a Box(r) Book" series. 2003, Little Simon/Simon & Schuster,
