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 find out who will. And what she sees makes her eyes bug out! Glowworms light up the stage, the audience hums with anticipation, and a panel of judges grins . . . but wait, aren't those fangs she sees glinting?
Carol Diggory Shields and Scott Nash are back with an exhilarating invasion of bombardier beetles, squirting stinkbugs, praying mantises, and one plucky little Damselfly who keeps her huge eyes openand seeing in all directions. Once again, Shields's lively verse mixes fun, fancy, and fascinating fact, while Scott Nash's exuberant artwork virtually flies off the page.
