An energetic ode to insects in a style that's Dr. Seuss meets Hieronymus Bosch... The madcap cartoons create an atmosphere that feels almost interplanetary, playing up the alien nature (and the diversity) of the insect world.
With bouncing rhyme and illustrations that demand multiple viewings, Bugs Galore is a rollicking celebration of all things creepy-crawly. This highly successful collaboration shows how well text and artwork can add up to something more... The main action is always clear and bold, but each spread features dozens of bugs with individual details, expressions, and actions. Kids will love identifying the little creatures specified in the text and discovering other stories through the pictures.
