Children's LiteratureThis is one of a series entitled "Busy Bugz" books. The finished product is computer generated and has the look of similarly produced TV and film features. The illustrations are brightly colored, cheerful and entertaining. The pop-ups are amusing and work well with the text. In one pop-up, a beetle struggles mightily to turn a nut with a wrench; in another a young caterpillar painter's hand moves downward and a painted swatch appears. The story, told in rhyme, is defined by the title. Buddy's toolbox is missing and the beetle's friends will not help him find it. But all ends well when it is revealed that they have built him a new toolbox. Eight pages of pop-ups is a very good number for the price of the book. 2002, Silver Dolphin, Ages 3 to 7.
