Feely Bugs: To Touch and Feel Book

David A. Carter, Author Little Simon $14.95 (12p) ISBN 978-0-689-80119-8
Carter (Alpha Bugs; Love Bugs) adds to his insect oeuvre with this collection of 12 textured specimens. The body of a ``glittery bug'' is made from a lame-like material; tightly pleated cloth forms the back of a ``wrinkly bug''; heart-shaped ``velvety bugs'' display that plush fabric; etc. Though the tactile surfaces here provide interest (and even the occasional sound effect, as in the candy-wrapper-like paper for ``crinkly bugs''), the book's simple format prevents Carter from showing the full range of his antic sensibilities. These bug-eyed beings seem less idiosyncratic than their counterparts in previous books, and the dynamism of paper engineering will be missed. All ages. (Sept.)
