About the Author:

Ann Heiskell Rickey was born in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1919 and has lived there all her life. She attended Saint Mary's School For Girls, Randolph Macon Women's College, and the University of Tennessee. Although this is her first published work, she has written a novel, two screenplays and several volumes of poetry. She has been active in politics and was an elected member of the Tennessee Democratic Executive Committee for 20 years as well as a delegate to two National Democratic Party Conventions. Her hobby has always been travel, and lured by her fascination with peoples and places, she has circled the globe from Borneo to Botswana.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6A bubbly collection of original poems mainly celebrating insects (though some other critters take center stage in the final section). Mostly humorous in content, the rhymes tickle the imagination as well as the funny bone, with the water strider slaloming on six little skis while the dragonfly is not just a bug,/Hes enamel, hes air, and are often thought-provoking as well, as when the mayfly considers the cutting irony of the ants offhand greeting have a nice day. The simple pen-and-ink cartoons support the verses and are in perfect step with their creepy-crawly subjects. While not as literary as Paul Fleischmans Joyful Noise (HarperCollins, 1988) or as decorative as Doug Florians Insectlopedia (Harcourt, 1998), this enjoyable romp can be teamed with those titles plus Cathi Hepworths Bug Off!: A Swarm of Insect Words (Putnam, 1998) and Jinny Johnsons handsome Simon and Schuster Childrens Guide to Insects and Spiders (S & S, 1997) for a nifty bug mix sure to lure science-resistant kids.Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
