Product description


A Junior Library Guild Selection Foote... has her finger on the pulse of her audience... . Illuminating, of course - and also a good deal of fun" - Kirkus Reviews "Although Foote's approach is redolent with humor, she wisely keeps the text fairly info-packed and straightforward, saving the broader comedy for the illustrations, where there are plenty of sight gags to tease out. The larvae are marvelously individuated... " - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Science teachers and students will love the engaging illustrations and the unique way of presenting a myriad of science terms and concepts while also making the reader chuckle. The extra sidebars and factoids are great information and presented in a way that will encourage even the most reluctant reader to notice, read, and learn from them." - Melanie Dulaney, Librarian at Hallsville Intermediate School "Like the young fireflies, inquiring minds will devour the interesting tidbits about this unique family of insects." - Booklist "Does anyone really know where fireflies come from? This book tackles the question with colorful cartoon drawings and a humorous story line... " - School Library Journal"
