I was strollin on home through the woods the other night, When I saw something a-flashin' it was shining mighty bright It was blinkin' and a-winkin' near the bottom of a tree, So I scurried on over just to see what I could see.

On his way home, a little boy happens upon a magical door to a tiny bugtown where termites play the trumpet, centipedes dance, and the Queen Bee announces that everyone in her kingdom should "Boogie down "

Warren Hanson's rhyming, rhythmic read-aloud, filled with bug sounds and dance moves, jives with Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher's rockin' art for jammin' insect adventure.
