About the Author
Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification―in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children's books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK's Children's Division and was Managing Director of the children's mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.
In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin's Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books―My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends―each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.

I think the bugs have changed over the years though, because our book doesn't have a spider or fly or some of the other bugs mentioned in other reviews. It has a bee with a fuzzy body, a ladybug with glossy spots, a snail with a kinda shiny shell, beetle with shiny wings you can grab, dragonfly with netted wings you can grab, worm made of corduroy-like material, and a butterfly with a shiny fabric wing you can grab.
The book's tag recommends you surface wash only; however if I throw everything in the washing machine (if it can't withstand a thorough cleaning, I don't want it). The colours faded noticably after 1 wash and the crinkley material in the first page ended up in one corner.
Still, this is definately one of my 3-month old's favourite books.
The cover is crinkly and it closes with Velcro. It would have been nice if it had a fold back Velcro tab so you can wash the book open without it snagging on things. It also would have been nice if the snail was a squeaker or if the spider would dangle from the web on a cloth cord. The little spider legs are cute, but very spindly and small -- watch out in case they come off with wear.
I'm a bit concerned about the colors fading/bleeding in the wash but overall it's one of the more attractive cloth books for babies and I think it was a good choice.
My 6 year old niece enjoyed reading the page rhymes out loud, so it ought to have a good lifespan.

This is my Three month old's favorite book. She loves to chew on it and look at the pictures. She has had it for a few weeks now and gets excited every time she sees it. Read morePublished on June 7 2004 by Kimberly Quindara
