A Junior Library Guild Selection
"Foote...has her finger on the pulse of her audience.... Illuminating, of course―and also a good deal of fun" -- Kirkus Reviews
"Although Foote’s approach is redolent with humor, she wisely keeps the text fairly info-packed and straightforward, saving the broader comedy for the illustrations, where there are plenty of sight gags to tease out. The larvae are marvelously individuated..." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Science teachers and students will love the engaging illustrations and the unique way of presenting a myriad of science terms and concepts while also making the reader chuckle. The extra sidebars and factoids are great information and presented in a way that will encourage even the most reluctant reader to notice, read, and learn from them." --Melanie Dulaney, Librarian at Hallsville Intermediate School
"Like the young fireflies, inquiring minds will devour the interesting tidbits about this unique family of insects." --Booklist
"Does anyone really know where fireflies come from? This book tackles the question with colorful cartoon drawings and a humorous story line..." --School Library Journal

Put on your pretending hat and crack open the cover to learn firsthand what it's like to survive as a firefly.
This book will be your handbook, little larva, as you embark upon your new life and let your personality shine through.
Your guide on this journey is a wizened general, who, at a year and a half old, has plenty of experience to pass on to you regarding everything you need to know in order to grow and develop into a full-grown, blinking beetle.
While following this fun, narrative tale, the reader will discover plenty of firefly facts without even realizing there's learning going on!
You'll learn about the life cycle, the steps involved in finding food, or what an adult's body looks like.
Then, if you still need a bit of help remembering all that you've learned, there's even a great glossary in the back of the book to highlight the most important facts.
