Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the inspired team behind Cars Galore comes a new read-aloud buzzing with nonstop rhymes and swarming with comical retro illustrations.

Bugs, bugs, BUGS galore creep, slither, stink, and squirm; scurry, fly — ewww, a worm! Dig in as a flurry of bugs of every shape, size, and color crawl across the page in a veritable infestation of whimsy and humor. Cars Galore creators Peter Stein and Bob Staake return to thrill (and gross out) bug enthusiasts of all ages, offering an in-the-dirt, high-in-the-sky critter tale sure to leave readers wiggling and stampeding for more.

Review:

"Stein and Staake follow up Cars Galore (2011) with an equally energetic ode to insects, which Staake portrays interacting with children — sometimes to their delight, sometimes not — in a style that's Dr. Seuss meets Hieronymus Bosch. Stein's staccato verse keeps an upbeat tempo throughout: 'Some bugs cruise/ around in groups./ Some bugs fly in/ loop-de-loops./ Some bugs land/ smack-dab in soups/ Some bugs crawl/ right under... oops' (the 'oops' bug is shown flattened under a girl's shoe). The madcap cartoons create an atmosphere that feels almost interplanetary, playing up the alien nature (and the diversity) of the insect world. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
