A humorous collection of poems about bugs, slugs and other creepy, crawly things that are sure to get a laugh from the 4 to 8-year-old crowd (who seem to have a thing for bugs at this age). The colorful child-like insect drawings are a perfect accompaniment to this silly approach to insect shenanigans. A creative way to get kids started on writing their own poems and increasing their observations of the insect world.

K-Gr 3Silly poems about bugs and insects, designed to tickle youngsters' funny bones. Although some succeed, others fizzle out. Cartoon illustrations done with bright magic markers capture the nonsense but also seem to fall flat. Norma Farber's Never Say Ugh! to a Bug (Greenwillow, 1979; o.p.) is a more successful effort, or, better yet, Paul Fleischman's Joyful Noise (HarperCollins, 1988).Sally R.
