Such beautiful illustrations and wonderful poems! I want to get another to use as posters in my classroom. A great way to teach kids about insects and poetry!

My kids love reading this book. It's a fun look into the life of bugs.

My younger children love to follow the pathway of the words through the garden with their fingers. Everyone enjoys the humor and rhythm of the story. We have given as a gift to many friends. Beautiful illustrations.

Photographs and illustrations are fascinating and the writing is refreshing, accessible to children from preschool through elementary. Something in this book for everyone. I was immediately impressed by the unique presentation of scientific information and the delightful use of lyrical text. A treasure.

This is one of the best books you'll ever find. It'll have you rolling with laughter (at the oh so true ways of bugs) and learning about bugs and their world too. The illustrations are as wonderful as the script. Can't go wrong with this book!

I have become a fan of Kurt Cyrus from the first book I found of his in the public library Oddhopper Opera. I enjoyed his poetic descriptions of a garden preparing for fall and winter. My daughter liked it so much she wanted to keep it. I bought her Oddhopper Opera and Hotel Deep. She loves both of them, as do I. They are visually stimulating and cleverly written. A little humor, education, and mystery woven into poetry. I would recommend either book for any child age 3 to 8.

"Wow! Mommy, it's a snake!" I heard those very words as a little one-year-old boy sat enthralled, flipping through pages of stunning pictures of lively bugs and of curving words crawling across the pages of Oddhopper Opera: A Bug's Garden of Verses.

Oddhopper Opera is a combination of rhyming verses and colorful drawings of bugs and animals. The child gets an insider's look into a bug's race in an unattended garden. Filled with bugs of all shapes and sizes, this garden provides the backdrop for the story line, that of a race among the bugs to get to the finish line. Its incorporation of poetry into an otherwise "science"- seeming children's book will broaden the imagination of any child.

Though there is a creative, wide range of vocabulary, it makes it a difficult independent read for a child (for example, "Once up on a garden rotten, Twice forlorn and half forgotten").

Oddhopper Opera doesn't shy away from the facts of life, apparent in some of these example lines "dung balls rolling - move `em out," "Feeling kind of bloated," "'Papa, O Papa Bug, what will we eat?' "`It's gummy, it's yummy, it's dung! What a treat!'"

Regarding format, some of the words follow the twists and curves of the pictures, making it a challenge for a child of ages 5 to 10 to read independently, but a fun journey to read with, or to, a child.

The intriguing mix of poetry, stunning pictures, bugs and action-filled pages will keep children's attention and increase curiosity about what's going on in their own backyards.

"Once upon a garden rotten,/Twice forlorn and half forgotten..." So begins Kurt Cyrus' marvelous collection of "a bug's garden of verses." As winter ends and spring blooms, all the creatures begin to wake up and come to the surface. Join aphids, bees, crickets, dung beetles, earwigs, and fleas, grubs, katydids, snakes, snails, frogs, stinkbugs, and many other creepy, crawly, slimy friends as they eat, work, and play. The seasons change and spring turns to summer, and then summer turns to autumn, when "Drip-drip-wet and muddy./Party's over, everybody." Mr Cyrus' exuberant and entertaining text is full of energy and motion, and wonderfully enhanced by his bold, vibrant and engaging artwork. These illustrations are a real feast for the eyes, and youngsters will enjoy poring over the pictures, and always finding something new and humorous each time they open the book. Perfect for little entomologists aged 6-10, Oddhopper Opera is a very creative and innovative look at the garden, and all who live there.
