About the Author:

Seymour Simon is a former teacher and the author of over 200 science books for children. More than half of his books have been named Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children by the National Science Teachers Association. He lives in New York.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 2. Simon says at the book's beginning that he is using the term bug to refer to "big insects, scorpions, and spiders that people often think of as bugs," implying but not stating that some of them are not actually bugs. Each double-page spread features one photograph of a creature along with several lines of text commenting on its physical characteristics and behaviors. One excellent graphic feature, often used here when the photo has been enlarged, is an inserted box showing the actual size of the animal with its body position identical to that shown in the main picture. Some of the photos are eye-catching and dramatic. In others, the form of the animal is hard to discern, particularly when the center of the picture disappears into the gutter of the side-sewn binding. This entry in the See More Reading series is recommended for larger collections. Carolyn Phelan
