The story itself was not what I expected after reading the title. The storyline was forced in a way that the rhyme scheme may have prohibited. The rhymes are fun and pictures fit the story exactly.

Mr. Mosquito is going to a high-class shin-dig. The queen bee is there so he dressed up nice and fancy. But the party is threatened by BIG FEET. Luckily, Mr. Mosquito remembers he is one of the most annoying insects on the planet, and with the help of his friends and family, he saves the day.

I'm an elementary teacher and my students absolutely LOVE this book! It's a great book to work with rhyming, predictions, new vocab, and using illustrations to enhance a story. I've used this as a read-aloud with a wide range of reading levels, and will continue to use this book in my classroom. Highly recommend!

The art is stiff--it should be funny, but somehow it just looks like wooden bug figures in clothes. The rhymes work, but that's about all they do.

This is book about a bug ball. Think insects in evening clothes. The story is written in rhyme so it has some pretty great vocabulary. I liked it.
