    1. Bugs In Space written by David A. Carter is a colorful interactive pop up book that follows Captain Bug Rogers on his journey into outer space to meet alien life. He travels to jupiter and back collecting alien friends along the way before returning to earth. The first page reads, "A signal from deep in space has been received that tells the world there is life in outer space. and now, Captain Bug Rogers is about to go where no Bug has gone before."I give this book a three star rating (really it [...]

    2. These are not overly complex pop-ups, but they are simply brilliant- squiggle cut lines that make tentacles undulate as the page opens, push pull machanisms that launch rockets forward- cute stuff, well done.

    3. "And now, Captain Bug Rogers in about to go where no bug has gone before" (n.p.) When a signal in space lets the world know there is other life out there, Captain Bug Rogers takes off with his partner, Robobug to explore. On their journey, they discover and befriend life on other planets, making lifelong friends that span the galaxy. The brilliant colors and pop-up features in the illustration bring the out-of-this-world adventure to life.The first thing I noticed about this book was the subject [...]

    4. Need an "attention grabber" in your story time? Any of Carter's pop-up books will serve. He has enough that you can find one to suit almost any theme. We program for four different age groups during the summer -- 0-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-11. We try to make books serve the different groups by modifying the presentation according to the audience. For the 0-2's we simply say "Peek-a-boo!" as we pop the flaps. For the 3-5's we might just read the caption on the flap or name the bug. For the 6-8's we wou [...]

    5. This is a pop-up book that all 3 of my kids (ages 8, 6, and 3) enjoyed and so did I. There are so many funny references to history, etc but all modified to fit the bugs theme. The "bug in the moon" instead of man in the moon and "One small step for bugs, one giant leap for bugkind." Very clever, and my 3 yo has wanted to read it nightly all week and has manipulated the various pop ups. Very, very cute and clever.

    6. Full of great puns for adults and awesome pop-ups for kids, this one was a nice light add to our summer reading collection. There is a whole series of these "Bugs" books and they have been so popular all year long. Now I look for a new one every time I have a story hour.

    7. Bugs in space by David A. Carter is a book literally out of this world. Its a short story about a Bug astronaut named Bug Rogers and his partner robobug going out to see if there's life in outer space. This book's art was surprisingly very good, the background and characters looked very well done. The colors are bright and pop, a really nice book to look at; However, high praise goes to the pop-ups. The pop-ups were dynamic had really clever effects and revealed some very interesting creatures. [...]
