“‘Bugsy Bug is going to see his grandma’-but is not sure how to get there. By following the clues, readers can help him find her. When they open the cover of this log-shaped board book, readers will find a veritable bug metropolis thriving inside. Cartoon-style illustrations in appropriately earthy tones depict ants, bees, worms, ladybugs, crickets, and a whole host more of not-so-identifiable critters. Stairs, hallways, and ladders lead to homes; shops, a cafe, and a restaurant; a library (with bookworms, of course!); and even a big, scary spider web. As Bugsy Bug asks for directions to his grandma’s house, friendly bugs give him instructions: “Go through the door by the bee in a bow tie.” When readers explore the different lift-the-flap doors on each double-page spread they will find amusing little scenes taking place behind most doors. The correct door has a die-cut opening leading to the next page. In addition to the action taking place behind the doors, each page turn is full of little details that will keep readers lingering before they move on. The amount of text per page, the busyness of the illustrations, and the dexterity required to lift the flaps without tearing them off the page altogether indicate an audience of older toddlers and preschoolers. Good interactive fun for tots.”
