Editorial Reviews Review

David A. Carter has bugs on the brain. Pop-up bugs, to be precise. Popular author of a series of insect-rich books, including Jingle Bugs and Bed Bugs, Carter is a masterful paper engineer. His latest holiday extravaganza takes a traditional Christmas song and turns it positively buggy. On each of the 12 days of Christmas "my true love" gives a new, festive creepy crawler--leaping, lurking, or popping right out of the box. By the fourth day, we're up to "four Snowflake Bugs, three Sneaky Bugs, two Cuckoo Bugs, and a Fruitcake Bug in a pear tree." Now if that's not true love...

Young pop-up enthusiasts will revel in the silly six-legged critters Carter creates. Decked out in antlers, tutus, and tinsel, these bugs are definitely set for the season. Unlike the once-opened gifts of Christmas, these pop-up packages bring enjoyment over and over again. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of Carter's Bugs in a Box series get more of what they like in this pop-up parody as a nimble troupe of nonsensical bugs upends a familiar Christmas carol. As in the previous books, each spread reveals another gaily wrapped box; inside each box is a new bug surprise, from a "fruitcake bug" grinning in a pear tree and "eight popcorn bugs a-popping." The grand finaleAa dozen "angel bugs" dangling from a full-size tabletop ornamentAis an eye-popper; aside from that feat, there's not much new here. Ages 2-5. (Oct.)
