"Brenna has written a hilarious book of poetry...Mongeau adds to the fun of the book with humorous black-and white illustrations."
– Winnipeg Free Press
"Brenna’s lyrics are short, regular of meter and rhyme scheme and more easily digestible than most of the food...Tasty and, as bugs show signs of becoming even more common menu items in the near future, timely too."
– Kirkus Reviews
"[Mongeau's] illustrations help evoke the imagination and may elicit a few 'eeeeewwwws' and lots of laughs...Ths book would be excellent to use in a classroom as the content is engaging and offers a variety of examples of what a poem can look like.Hihly Recommended."
