From Publishers Weekly
Raising the flaps on each spread of this lift-up counting book reveals fanciful insects in increasing numbers, from "one tough bug" with barbells, to "seven space bugs" surrounded by stars and planets, to "ten saw bugs," whose snouts indeed consist of saws. Startlingly bright illustrations and elaborate paper engineering should attract young children's attention. However, the cleverness to the made-up insects varies widely; groups such as "three pretty bugs" and "nine very long-necked bugs" seem rather tame in contrast to the rest. Ages 3-6.
