"A rollicking, tongue-in-cheek entree to the entomological world." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
In this rousing read-aloud from the creators of SATURDAY NIGHT AT THE DINOSAUR STOMP, all of insect land is abuzz with news of a big contest The demure Damselfly Dilly "neither clever nor frilly" has no thoughts of winning, but she's curious to see who will. Lively verse mixes fun, fancy, and fascinating fact, while exuberant artwork virtually flies off the page.
