Bug Off!

3.46 of 5 stars 3.46  ·  rating details  ·  13 ratings  ·  6 reviews
Buggy wordplay fun abounds in this ingenious sequel to "ANTics". Dozens of offbeat illustrations, zany visual illustrations and great new words to learn highlight this delightful book.
Published May 18th 1998 by G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers

Reviewed By Aaron Carter

This unique book identifies the names of various insects in everyday words, and then illustrates them in human-like actions and scenarios. For example, "Beeper" shows a bee dressed as a doctor with its beeper signaling, "Beefy" shows a muscular bee beside weights, and "Behemoth" has a monstrous moth towering over a devastated city. The illustrations are well executed and humo
Another fun book by Cathi Hepworth which I used as part of word work with fifth graders. My students really enjoyed the illustrations.
Lots of words that bring in different bugs like bees, moths, gnats, mites, ticks, and lice. Word work!
Use bug names to create new words such as encROACHment. Very well done
