The tagline is "Poems to make your skin crawl" and they certainly do! These poems demonstrate how research and art can combine with great affect. The poets obviously know their topic and the poems communicate the appearance and interesting (if not disgusting!) traits of these different bugs. Illustrations are in vibrant colors for student appeal. A section in the back goes into more detail about each of these bugs. Any time Lee Bennet Hopkins puts together a collection of poems, I'm at the front of a line waiting to read the book. This is no exception. Will Terry's colorfully intense and lush double-page spread illustrations are equally engaging, blending humor with the science embedded in each poem. This is a book that should be in every classroom, library, poetry unit, and home. Entertaining and informative is a priceless combination.

Will Terry's illustrations are so fitting for this book of bug poetry. Great book!

I think Nasty Bugs has a real shot to win a Nerdy Book Club poetry award.
