"Clear that thicket, dozer cricket."
"Ants that sift, sort and lift."
"Big bug rig, watch it dig."

Lifting, sorting, digging, and hauling are dirty jobs, but someone's got to do them. So when a construction worker throws away a half-eaten sandwich, a crew of bugs gets to work clearing the area of debris. With a simple text and up-close illustrations, readers will see how bugs and trucks have much in common that an ant is just like a forklift or a cricket can act as a bulldozer. Kids will be fascinated by Kurt Cyrus's innovative and bold artwork showing each bug's unique way of getting the job done
