Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
David Carter who is the author, artist, paper engineer and creative force behind more than twenty pop-up bug books is one of the world's outstanding paper engineers. This little book for little hands has nine double page spreads with nine different ways to delight its readers. All of the pages have plain white backgrounds. The recto, or right side page, of every spread has the pop-up and the verso has a few simple sentences. On the first page, "It's a snowy day today. Let's go out and play. Who's outside the window?" The opposite page has a yellow window through which you can see a gray sky and a snow-covered landscape. There is an icicle dripping outside at the top of the window and is that a bug's eye? Opening the window flap from the right side reveals a Thermometer Bug with its red mercury dropping as the window opens. On the following page a closet door opens to reveal winter clothing that is fun to touch and on the next page, a giant snowball can be opened to show a family of Snowflake Bugs, each one different. There are Snow Bugs ice skating, sledding, snowboarding, and having snow ball battles; and on the very last page there is a Snowman Bug so large that you wonder how he can fold back into the book. None of the actions work in exactly the same way so every page is a surprise. Some are more complicated than others, but all will bring a smile. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich

    David Carter Bug Books

    As a mother, I decided to address this review to other mothers,
    regarding the bug book series; what began as a whimsical exploration
    into David Carter's imagination, transforming the mundane into
    magical adventures, helped to remove the ICK! factor, that girls especially, associate with bugs (and has led to quite an investment from my pocketbook!); and of course the stories are woven with such wonderful, colorful, origami-like contraptions, that the word "illustrations" can't do justice to the stories and poems that have become Carter's absurdity, leaving children of all ages anticipating what is sure to become yet another classic in his unique style that most authors can only hope to achieve. David Carter has certainly helped to instill a love of reading in the youngest members of his audiences, keeping his parent readers entertained and warranting several re-reads to discover all of the intricacies not noticed when reading the story for content initially.
    No matter the subject, holiday or theme, although I have my favorites, I have yet to dislike any of Carter's books, but since we began collecting them when my children were (much) too young for them at first, we have managed to keep them in great shape by treating them as "special" books to share, making minor repairs as necessary; they take up most of a shelf in our personal library, but I will make room as necessary for any future publications as I am thoroughly enchanted with the series and will continue to give the books my highest recommendation.
