Visually detailed, this solid offering offers brief descriptions of a variety of bugs. Mixed-media illustrations emphasize textures and patterns as the insects creep, inch, and flutter along each page. Various perspectives place the bugs as the dominant focus on the scene as they invade each spread. The crisp, rhyming text perfectly suits this fast-paced read-aloud. "Some bugs STING./Some bugs BITE./Some bugs STINK./And some bugs FIGHT!" The simple sentences emphasize the action and appearance of these creepy crawlies. Bold capitalized words highlight each specific sound and action. The bugs are viewed in a variety of outdoor settings, against a backdrop of striking leaves, thick branches, and on top of bubbling water. A dramatic final spread encourages young naturalists to explore the great outdoors. "So kneel/down close,/LOOK/very hard,/and find/SOME BUGS/in your backyard!" Colorful endpapers provide labeled drawings of dozens of bugs. DiTerlizzi demonstrates that it is a bug's world after all, and what a beautiful world indeed.
