Publisher's Weekly Review

Dot & Jabber and the Big Bug Mystery by Ellen Stoll Walsh is the third in a series about the two mouse detectives. This time their scientific mystery involves the insects they've been watching, which seem to disappear. As the two search for bugs, grasshoppers and butterflies, they learn about how insects use camouflage to survive. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-The mouse detectives are back in another eco-mystery. When all the bugs in their meadow suddenly disappear, the mice interview a sparrow and a rabbit and observe some butterflies, finally discovering that the bugs have used camouflage to hide from their predators. The story is simple and unremarkable, but Walsh's illustrations add interest. The distinctive cut-paper collages step nicely off the page for a 3-D look, and the earthy greens and browns are gentle and calming. A note on insects and camouflage is included.-Shelley B.
