A Junior Library Guild Selection


"Foote...has her finger on the pulse of her audience.... Illuminating, of course—and also a good deal of fun."  

-- Kirkus Reviews


"Does anyone really know where fireflies come from? This book tackles the question with colorful cartoon drawings and a humorous story line..."

 --School Library Journal


"Science teachers and students will love the engaging illustrations and the unique way of presenting a myriad of science terms and concepts while also making the reader chuckle. The extra sidebars and factoids are great information and presented in a way that will encourage even the most reluctant reader to notice, read, and learn from them."

--Melanie Dulaney, Librarian at Hallsville Intermediate School
