Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Raising the flaps on each spread of this lift-up counting book reveals fanciful insects in increasing numbers, from ``one tough bug'' with barbells, to ``seven space bugs'' surrounded by stars and planets, to ``ten saw bugs,'' whose snouts indeed consist of saws. Startlingly bright illustrations and elaborate paper engineering should attract young children's attention. However, the cleverness to the made-up insects varies widely; groups such as ``three pretty bugs'' and ``nine very long-necked bugs'' seem rather tame in contrast to the rest. Ages 3-6. (February)
Children's Literature
David Carter is a paper engineer who creates very clever books. This board book version of his original large format pop-up is a real delight. Kids learning to count will enjoy pulling the tabs to see the strange and colorful array of bugs that appear. Carter's imagination has run wild as he presents four fast fleas in a small box and five mellow-yellow fish bugs in a big blue box. Not only are numbers presented with a chance to count all the little critters, other concepts, such as size and color, are also part of the text. It is fun, funny, and educational, and it will hold up to many tugs by little hands. 2006 (orig. 1988), Little Simon/Simon & Schuster, Ages 3 to 5.
