Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

With zany irreverence, Carter's bugs return in a pop-up book that features them popping out of a red schoolhouse, then hiding in colorful, themed boxes. Readers can discover "Who's in the reading box?" by lifting the flap of a blue box decorated with white letters (26 "Spelling Bees" are inside). In the "music box," the "Beetle Bugs," dressed as their namesakes, pop up, singing "yeah, yeah, yeah." The text may be simple, but the well-executed pop-ups will entertain. Ages 3-up.

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
Artist and paper engineer David Carter has done it again! School Bugs is his 20th pop up book featuring his own special carter bugs, and each pop-up in the book is amusing, surprising, inventive, and just plain fun! Take the first pop-up, for example. It is a little red school house that pulls down from the top with nine carter bugs spilling out onto the page; what is even more amazing is that all nine bugs fold right back into the school house when it is time to look at the next page! There are nine double-page spreads with flaps to open, all of them with pop-ups inside, and not one of them works in exactly the same way as another. There are spelling bees and creative art bugs, counting bugs and ball playing bugs, a sandwich bug and a great pyramid bug, and curious science bugs and four beetle bugs, yeah, yeah, yeah! To top it all off, on the last page, when "all the bugs go out to play," there's a ladder, a sliding board, rings and things, a rope to climb up to a platform, and a butterfly bug flying overhead. David Carter is a master paper engineer. Children are lucky to have him thinking about them. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
