Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They crawl up walls, they hide in cracks, they flip, they fly, and sometimes...crrrash. Beetles come in all shapes and sizes, and they are everywhere in this thoroughly buggy, beautifully designed book.

There are striped beetles, spotted beetles, all-over-dotted beetles — and don't forget the noisily gnawing beetles! Whether you love bugs or whether the sight of them makes you itch, you'll adore this infested offering from the beloved Denise Fleming.

Review:

"Beetles come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, and Fleming (In the Small, Small Pond) gives an exuberant shout-out to a slew of them in this eye-catching catalogue of backyard nature. Befitting the books title, Flemings verse dances across the pages Brown beetles, /green beetles, /not-often-seen beetles accented by changing font, color, and even direction in the layout of text. But young readers will especially want to pore over her bursting-with-color, dyed-paper-pulp compositions. As they do, they will glean information about beetle behavior (crashing into porch lightbulbs, gnawing on leaves or bark) and the beetles place in the larger food chain (being lapped up by a salamanders tongue or snatched in a birds beak). Part boisterous read-aloud, part field guide for entomology enthusiasts, this arresting volume has something for everybuggy. Ages 3-7." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"The type design and placement of the text are an integral part of the lush illustrations, and the balance between fun and fact will awaken youngsters' curiosity. This perfect mix of art, science, and rhyme." School Library Journal

With legs, antennae, horns, beautiful shells, knobs, and other odditiesand#8212;whatand#8217;s not to like about beetles? The beetle world is vast: one out of every four living things on earth is a beetle. There are over 350,000 different species named so far and scientists suspect there may be as many as a million.
