By Paul Fleischman, Eric Beddows
Written to be learn aloud by means of voices--sometimes alternating, occasionally simultaneous--here is a suite of impossible to resist poems that commemorate the insect international, from the fast lifetime of the mayfly to the affection music of the e-book louse. humorous, unhappy, loud, and quiet, each one of those poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, cheerful noise.
In this outstanding quantity of poetry for 2 voices, Paul Fleischman verbally re-creates the "Booming/boisterious/joyful noise" of bugs. The poems resound with the heart beat of the cicada and the drone of the honeybee. Eric Beddows′s shiny drawings ship each one insect hovering, spinning, or creeping off the web page in its personal specified way.
A transparent and engaging consultant to the insect world--from chrysalid butterflies to whirligig beetles-- and an exultant occasion of life.
