Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–5—Cleverly designed pop-ups are the highlight of this novelty book. Most spring from the center as the book is opened and succeeding pages are turned; particularly effective are replicas of an orchid mantis, a termite mound, and a dung beetle (a ball of dung appears to rotate when the page opens). Each of seven spreads is geared to a different topic, indicated in a heading and an introductory paragraph; included are defenses, feeding habits, senses, etc. Surrounding each pop-up are a half-dozen or so smaller color drawings of (mostly) insects; about half have movable parts—a mix of lift-up flaps and pull tabs that move paper components up, down, or sideways. Unfortunately, many of the tabs are set flush with page edges, making them hard to grasp. Short blocks of text describe distinctive physical and/or behavioral characteristics of bees, ants, moths, grasshoppers, etc. Organization is often weak as some entries don't match the theme. For instance, a spread on insect metamorphosis includes spider development; "Amazing Insects" includes millipedes and worms. The text seems to assume that readers already understand the differences between these arthropods for it fails to explain them. George C. McGavin's Amazing Insects and Spiders (Gareth Stevens, 2008) is better organized. However, despite the aforementioned flaws and the likelihood of a very short shelf life, this book's ingenious paper engineering will definitely attract browsers as well as children fascinated by "bugs."—Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library
Kirkus Reviews
The insect world receives a flawed, interactive overview. With one topic per spread (habitat, social structure, defense mechanisms, etc.), a central pop-up draws attention and is surrounded by thematically related facts and illustrations supplemented by further movable elements. A pull-tab demonstrates a trapdoor spider's ambush; another draws an adult ladybug over its larval form; a third tucks a bee into an iris to gather pollen. A couple of flipbooks, while delightful in concept, operate too fast for adequate display of the animation effect. This book regrettably throws spiders and other non-insects into the mix—a common error but one that kids' books should really move beyond. Just because something is creepy-crawly and has many legs is no reason to ignore basic taxonomy, even if you want to do something cool to demonstrate millipede walking action. (Pop-up nonfiction. 5-8)
