Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Insects with attitude. When gnats don swords and feathered hats, and a flea named Ralph has giraffe in "hif mouf," it's not long before other crawly insects become bold, too. In this lively collection of bug-centered poems, a grasshopper who's downright tacky chews weeds and spits "tobacky," while a dumb pair of beetles sets out to float across the sea in a tennis-shoe boat. Rob Shepperson's drawings add quiet visual humor to David L. Harrison's quick-witted verse, and the combination of the two creates mind-tickling comedy.
