“She will not clutch, nor even touch, the bumblebee I gave her. The fly, she hates (but tolerates it…like a sour neighbor).” This striking bilingual exploration of a little girl’s aversion to all things wiggly works effortlessly on every level. Operating as a Spanish and/or English rhyming and grammar lesson–plus a humorous, yet gross, index of bugs, including beetles, salamanders, moths, and spiders, among others–and presenting museum-quality, collage-like artwork, this title raises the bar for all children’s picture books. Ages two and up.
