More About Face Bug by J. Patrick Lewis; Frederic B. Siskind; Kelly Murphy
 
 
 
Overview
Come to the grand opening of the Face Bug Museum where readers can join an insect crowd to see amazing close-up photographs of bug faces, meet the bugs featured, and participate in interactive museum exhibits. In this innovative book of poetry, drawings, and photographs, J. Patrick Lewis's sly, humorous poems introduce readers to each of fourteen bugs. Kelly Murphy's black-and-white drawings create a funny visual story about two beetle friends gleefully exploring this memorable museum. In addition, awe-inspiring, dramatic (very) close-up photos of bug faces decorate the museum walls. A book of poetry and photographs and a picture-book story rolled into one, Face Bug is a unique collaboration.

Who says bugs aren’t cute? Lewis zeros in on insects’ best assets in this poetry book with a quirky concept: it’s the grand opening of the Face Bug Museum, which features closeup photos of insects. The accompanying poems are nimble and playful. One praises a feathery Goldenrod Stowaway Moth: “Startled by her beauty, I/ Bend down and whisper, ‘Hello.’/ A moth has perched upon a flower,/ A ‘goldenrod,’ bright yellow.” Museum visitors, ink-drawn cartoon bugs, provide funny side narratives (two butterflies take a break at the museum’s “Nectar Café”), while acting out some of the bug behaviors mentioned in the poems (e.g., a stinkbug lives up to its reputation). Siskind’s extraordinary photographs display every bristle, dew drop, and antenna. After appreciating these intimate portraits, readers will think twice before swatting a fly. Ages 6–up. (Mar.)
