Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bill Martin Jr. pairs up with Michael Sampson to create a sparkling, shorter version of Martin's first book, The Little Squeegy Bug, a warm story about identity and belonging, published 51 years ago. Newcomer Patrick Corrigan contributes appealingly stylized, digitally prepared art in which luminous hues light up the pages. After the earnest title character meets a brazen bumblebee, he longs for similar silver wings and a stinger in his tail. But a wise spider bequeaths him with his own identity as a firefly. Inventively designed, the volume features type of various sizes, often mimicking the movement of the likable bug.

From Booklist

Ages 5-7. A little bug meets a big bumblebee, who tells him that he too can get silver wings if he climbs to the sky. The plucky bug climbs the tallest cattail he can find, where he befriends a kind caterpillar. Together they visit a helpful spider, who fits the bug with little silver wings, a bright star-lantern to carry in his tail, and a new name: Squeegy the Firefly. The jacket-flap copy indicates that the text is a shortened version of Martin's first book, The Little Squeegy Bug (1945). The story is still a bit long for many preschoolers, but the humble bug's magical transformation will draw in listeners. The smooth and sassy digital artwork by promising newcomer Corrigan is at its best in the bolder, more dynamic pictures. Primary-grade teachers will find this useful for units on bugs. Carolyn Phelan
