Publisher's Weekly

As the title suggests, the poems in this collection from contemporary children’s poets focus on the less lovable characteristics of certain insects; Terry’s fuzzy-textured artwork follows suit, with cartoonishly monstrous depictions of bugs with scowling eyes, pointy teeth, and big appetites. Hopkins’s “Ode to a Dead Mosquito” reads, “You of little brain/ didn’t you know/ I felt your sting/ the instant you/ began to drain?” Amy Ludwig Vanderwater describes a lice infestation (“Deep between our once clean sheets/ you roam like mini mice./ When we share hats we’re sharing you/ like eggy leggy rice”), as a sufferer clutches at hair crawling with fanged purple bugs. A squirm-inducing tribute to our blood-sucking, garbage-eating insect friends. Ages 6–up. (Mar.)2012 Reed Business Information

Editorial Reviews

"While each of the poems has a humorous touch, they also capture the essence of just what it is that makes the bugs so undesirable."--Booklist

"A squirm-inducing tribute to our blood-sucking, garbage-eating insect friends."--Publishers Weekly

"Terry's smooth, vividly colored paintings, mostly double-page spreads underlying the poems, add to the fun."--Kirkus Reviews
