Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With realistic illustrations and creepy fun facts about each bug, this colorful book will fascinate young readers as it brings six different bugs to life in 3-D. Readers will meet a hairy orange spider, a honeybee, a huge red cockroach, a blue beetle, a grasshopper, and a spotted ladybug.

Along the way readers will discover all sorts of fascinating facts, including: there are eight million beetle species; grasshoppers are green because their blood contains no oxygen; ladybugs smell through their feet; and much more.

Praise for Creepy Critters:

"The art’s bright colors and models’ unusual scale will rivet audiences large or small. A quick buzz through buggy biology, equally suitable for reading or exhibition."

Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Bold, oversize pop-ups in eye-catching colors introduce six bugs: a ladybug, bee, grasshopper, spider, beetle, and cockroach. An opening section provides background, differentiating between insects, arachnids, myriapods, and crustaceans, while sidebars and multiple captions offer numerous details about each specimen. The many fascinating facts that arise — 'Beetles make up more than 25 percent of all animal species on Earth,' and a 'cockroach can live without its head for several weeks because its brain is spread around its body' — will arm budding entomologists with juicy kernels of trivia. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

All sorts of creepy, crawly creatures assume larger-than-life proportions when it comes to capturing the fascination of children. In this oversize volume, giant scorpions, a praying mantis, and more pop right off the pages, jiggling and wiggling their way to life brandishing claws, stingers, pincers, and more. Bold illustrations and accompanying rhyming text will intrigue budding young naturalists.
