Overview
A fascinating pop-up journey into the hidden world of insects, spiders, and other creepy-crawlies.
Larger-than-life bugs spring from the pages, peek out from behind flaps, and hide under tabs, inviting young entomologists to marvel at the mind-boggling variety of arthropod life. What reader can resist a chance to look inside a cockroach s body to see how it works or open a wasps nest to see what s inside? Useful information (why does the world need bees?) and scientific trivia (which beetles are strongest and fastest?) pack every page, while exquisite art and dramatic pop-ups bring the world of bugs to teeming life."

McGavin and Kay use a scrapbook-style format to explore the diversity and habits of arthropods. Under the watch of a pop-up dragonfly, readers learn about the characteristics of insects, arachnids, crustaceans, and myriapods (centipedes and millipedes) on the opening spread, while subsequent sections focus on their anatomy, growth, and habitats. With the exception of a striking scorpion that unfolds on the final spread, most of the pop-ups are fairly simple and low-key, but there’s still a great deal to discover and learn: a pull-out panel covers hibernation and types of insects that can be found in homes and on people, while a faux newspaper covers the benefits of bugs, from eating pests to spinning silk. Ages 7–10. (Oct.)
