Bugtown Boogie by Warren Hanson is one of my new favorite books. There is filled with rhythm and rhymes. There are bugs dancing! There is a little who finds bug heading into a tree trunk to boogie.
The tree trunk is filled is bugs of all kinds. They are jumping and jiving to a band made of a humbug drumming, a termite trumpeting, a ladybug on a flute, a mosquito strumming a guitar, a grasshopper fiddling, and a cricket singing solos.
Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher’s paintings of caterpillars twisting and a dozen of bugs tapping their feet are such fun. The picture of Queen Bee’s entrance gives you a full picture of the band and all the bugs along with the queen.
Everyone waits until she shouts, “Boogie Down!” Then everyone starts dancing until sunrise.
After the bugs head home so, does the boy with a hop in his step.
The book is such fun to read. I love how the words dance off my lips.
