Robert Sabuda is really just amazing. I can only give beetles three stars on principle, but the book is full of information and the pop-ups are illustrated, not photographed, so I could handle looking at them. ( )

Well. Where do I begin? Somebody called Sabuda the "pop-up god". King of King and Lord of Hosts, and he shall reign forever and ever, if this book is anything to go by! (Well, Matthew Reinhart - the Crown Prince? palace favorite? - did help.)

Seriously, this book is awesome. It's got a stag beetle from Indonesia that grabs with its mandibles. A little book with a pull-tab turning its pages. A harlequin beetle popping out of tree bark. And it comes with a (paper) stag beetle suitable for framing.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0786805579, Hardcover)

You'll never look at beetles the same way again. When masterful paper engineer Robert Sabuda works his pop-up magic, you're sure to find beauty and wonder in the thorniest of creatures. About 350,000 kinds of beetles creep across the surface of our world, but don't worry, Sabuda and cocreator Matthew Reinhart only include a few here, including dung scarabs (move the pages to "roll" the dung!) and the giant horned Hercules beetle of Central and South America. The colorful, metallic exoskeletons explode to life with every well-designed page, causing even the most beetle-phobic to marvel at their intricate anatomy. Funny, accessible sidebars ("Don't talk with your mandibles full") are sure to engage young naturalists in search of factoids about the eclectic, leggy group Coleoptera. To top it all off, each pop-up book comes with a paper frame with a plastic-encased, paper-engineered specimen of Phalacrognathus muelleri, the Australian stag beetle. (Beetles were not harmed in the making of this book.) A wonderful gift for the young naturalist on your list! (The Young Naturalist's Pop-Up Handbook of Butterflies is also quite fetching.) (Ages 6 to 10) --Karin Snelson
