Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Each of the nineteen poems in this slim volume takes a different poetic form (e.g., Shakespearean sonnet for "Wolf Spider Mama") to convey information on the bug in question, to varying degrees of success. In addition to some creative design, Evans's linoleum block and watercolor prints add visual interest. Notes on the poetry forms are included. Reading list, websites. Glos.

Gr 2-5 -The poems in this collection flit and buzz effortlessly from page to page as members of the insect world are showcased in a variety of poetic forms, from haiku to clerihew. Antlions, skipper caterpillars, and even dung beetles make appearances. A brief annotation accompanies each poem, providing a few juicy factoids for budding entomologists while ever-present humor pulls in all fans of anything gross. In "The Hot Shot," a bombardier beetle blasts hot acid from its "seatle," and in "Advice to a Caterpillar," a swallowtail warns the larva to "pretend you're bird poop." Notes at the book's end dissect each poem's formal elements, and a glossary clarifies scientific terminology. Evans's naturalistic block prints crawl playfully through the text, echoing the lighthearted tone. For readers or teachers who go buggy for Douglas Florian's Insectlopedia (Harcourt, 1998) or Paul Fleischman's sophisticated Joyful Noise (HarperCollins, 1988), suggest Hey There, Stink Bug! They'll laugh, they'll learn, and hopefully they won't lose their lunch!-Jill Heritage Maza, Conn Elementary, Raleigh, NC
