This is an excellent book of absolutely hysterical poems and wonderful illustrations. It made me laugh out loud. You must read "the weevils" on page 24! — Northshire Staff

Description


“Mosquitoes are thin./Mosquitoes are rude./They feast on your skin/For take-out food.” Children will delight in the playful language and hilarious illustrations while they learn about twenty-one insects that will bug or beguile them. From swooping dragonflies and twirling whirligig beetles to marching army ants and feasting mosquitoes, here is one pest infestation you’ll welcome into your home!
