Review quote

"While each of the poems has a humorous touch, they also capture the essence of just what it is that makes the bugs so undesirable."--Booklist "A squirm-inducing tribute to our blood-sucking, garbage-eating insect friends."--Publishers Weekly "Terry's smooth, vividly colored paintings, mostly double-page spreads underlying the poems, add to the fun."--Kirkus Reviews
