Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sounds of the Wild: Bugs makes learning fun! With delightful sounds and five stunning pop-up panoramas featuring Maurice Pledger's award-winning art, this book lets kids get up close with the insect world. They'll hear the hum of bees, the ticking of beetles, and the snap of scorpions. They'll see the two-spotted tree cricket and the monarch butterfly, who make their homes in woods and fields, and the desert tarantula and the striped hawk moth, who make their homes in the desert. Bugs from mountains, water, and wetlands are all included.

With colorful illustrations by Maurice Pledger, Sounds of the Wild: Bugs is a stunning introduction to this creepy, crawly, and ultimately fascinating world.

About the Author

Maurice Pledger is an internationally-acclaimed artist known for his realistic and detailed illustrations of animals and wildlife. He's had no formal art training, but achieves the realism and detail in his beautiful artwork by spending hours in the field observing, sketching, and studying his subjects in their natural environment. First published at age 17, he has since had his illustrations featured on greeting cards, prints, gifts, and books. He has created several successful series, including Sounds of the Wild, Peek-and-Find, Nature Trails, and Pledger Sticker Books. He was the recipient of the 1992 Francis Williams Illustration Award for the Best Descriptive Illustration. This honor is given only once every 5 years by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
