From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-- Despite its cloying title, this collection of 31 short poems about invertebrates is light and lively. Most of the verses on insects, spiders, snails, etc., originated in the U. S. or England, but there are also entries from Australia, Scotland, Canada, the Caribbean, and Japan. The majority have been published before; about two-thirds are available in other anthologies, some widely (eight are included in Prelutsky's Random House Book of Poetry for Children Random, 1983). The selections, in rhyme and free verse, are a nice mix of the silly, mildly humorous, and sublimely lyrical. Appealing, brightly colored pen-and-ink drawings appear on every page. Some that illustrate the more humorous offerings are anthropomorphized (a few of these show worms and spiders with anatomically incorrect antennae--an interesting anomaly since the dust jacket states that the artist originally wanted to become a zoologist) but most are realistic depictions of the animals. While this collection is not as saucy as Prelutsky's Poems of a Nonny Mouse (Knopf, 1989), it is an entertaining read-aloud for the younger set. --Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library
