Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Eye-popping artwork headlines this sensational picture book in praise of insects. Oppenheim's (Have You Seen Birds?) sprightly verse takes an up-close-and-personal view of bugs in all their splendid variety ("Bugs with stripes/ or speckles/ or spots,/ shiny like metal/ or covered in dots"). Meanwhile, Broda's exquisite painted paper sculptures, strategically placed against a series of watercolor backdrops, give the pages depth, texture and a brilliantly surreal flavor. Readers will be craning their necks for a "how did he do that?" look at the detail, from the intricate designs of a butterfly's wing to the gleaming metallic back of a beetle. Touching upon caterpillars and crickets, ladybugs and lacewing dragonflies, author and illustrator cover a lot of ground and, thanks to Oppenheim's hardworking verse as well as the careful art, they pack in a surprising amount of information. While this finely wrought book is particularly well suited to the learning style of younger readers, those at the upper end of the target group will no doubt be equally enthralled. Ages 5-8. (May)
Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gilson
You will see bugs as you have never seen them before in this informational book on how bugs move, communicate, and even help people. Rhyming verse and full page color illustrations will catch the ear and eye while reading to oneself or others. Ron Broda's award winning three-dimensional paper sculptures of colorful bugs make this a unique and different addition for a library or a classroom collection of insect books. Additional bug information as well as identification of the bug illustrations by page number is provided at the end of the book.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-An alliterative, rhyming text is accompanied by dramatic, brilliantly colored, three-dimensional paper sculptures that were photographed to create the final images. This jubilant celebration of insects in a variety of habitats is reinforced informationally by a page-by-page listing of the insects depicted. While millipedes (diplopods) and spiders (arachnids) are not "bugs," most insects (class Insecta) are not "true bugs" either. All of the beasties shown are joint-legged arthropods. This is not a book for sophisticated report writers, but it's perfect for any youngster who has ever followed a flittering butterfly, pondered a spider spinning a web, or chased a twinkling firefly-and even more for those who dream of such joyous experiences. An eye-catching delight.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
