With over twenty titles now in this series of bugland pop-up books, there is a huge audience of appreciative fans who love these cute and clever interactive picture books.

'It's time to get moving. It's time to hit the road! Let's see all the ways the Bugs go, go, go!'

On the opposite page from this opening you'll find a large suitcase decorated with travel stickers. Open it and you'll be delighted to discover a Jet Airplane Bug soaring off into the clouds. As you page through the book you'll find a Bicycle Bug behind some garden flowers, a Hot-Air balloon Bug when you flip back the balloon basket, and a Fire Engine Bug hidden by clouds of black smoke.

Other bugs are skateboarding, speeding around a race track, and taking their sailboat out for a day on the ocean. The final scenario is a two page spread with a number of bugs engaged in constructing a large building. On the site you'll find a Dump Truck Bug, Pile Driver Bug, Crane Bug, and a Bulldozer Bug plus other busy bugs toiling away.

This book is intended for youngsters age three and older, but many adults are so enamored with this series and pop-up books in general that they collect them. That being the case, I don't expect that this latest book will be around too long. Once it sells out you'll have to go without or pay a premium to purchase it, so don't wait too long to get a copy.
