More than 10 years ago, writer Giles Andreae branched out from his saucy Purple Ronnie poems into children's books.

Here he reunites with artist Wojtowycz, with whom he made his breakthrough books Rumble in the Jungle, Commotion in the Ocean and Farmyard Hullabaloo.

The formula remains unchanged: Andreae's cheeky, evocative couplets focus on different species one at a time, on this occasion taking in spiders, snails, dragonflies and the like. It's just right for young ones starting to take an interest in what's wriggling around their back garden, in all its curious, colourful and occasionally yucky variety.
