Bugs That Go - David Carter



Released May 2011

David A. Carter
Simon and Schuster

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Here’s another in the delightful “Bugs” pop-up series by David Carter. This time we see the ingenious way Carter devises various types of transportation pop-ups into this cleverly engineered novelty book.

You’ll find a jet airplane bug and bicycle bug with turning wheels, along with a hot air balloon bug lifting off and a fire engine bug spraying water on an out-of- control fire.  Other bugs are on skateboards, race cars, and sailboats.

For the grand finale, the last two pages open out into a construction site with all sorts of bug equipment from a crane and dump truck to a back-hoe, pile driver and forklift. 

Certain to please the toddler set, this new pop-up book is also guaranteed to put a smile on the faces of collectors who have amassed a pop-up book library. Get moving and buy a copy of this book before they are all gone because Bugs That Go! will soon be gone!
