4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book 23 Nov 2013
By Zo
Format:Paperback
Bought as a present for someone who enjoys crafts and loves to make new things. The book shows a guide on how to use (recycle) items from around the house to create bugs but with your own imagination you can use the guidelines and create your own bug designs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for some creative bug-making 27 Jan 2012
By Neil Sorenson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although working with wire is a bit daunting and frustrating at first, taking care to follow the guidelines and suggestions in this book will quickly get you over the skill barrier. After a few attempts, I was making sophisticated critters loosely based on the book's examples.

The book isn't strictly a follow-by-numbers guide as much of the art of creating these things lies in working with whatever materials you happen to have laying around (shells, beads, wooden bits, etc.). Some people might find it disappointing that they can't absolutely recreate the precise project they see in the book but each project has enough variability to allow for substitutions and experimentation.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book 6 Nov 2011
By Sheri Loftin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you want to make wire bugs this is a perfect book. Each section is a step by step guide on building various bugs from wire and other 'junk' you may find lying around. So far the Ant is my favorite.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read this one too!!! 31 Oct 2012
By buggy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a prime example of the problem with buying a book sight unseen!! It may be suitable for an 8 year old but that is about it. There are several issues. First the list of supplies needed is unrealistic: one dry poppy seed pod, one old metal spoon, one dried macadamia nut,one glass carafe stopper, one metal madeleine cake mold, one hazelnut, two large pine cone scales, one 2 inch fishing float, one cocoanut bract one old tin plated ladle, etc. A person is lucky if they can make one bug with out going on a scavenger hunt!! A second issue is the lack of detail and care in the construction of the bugs: a walking stick is formed by wrapping 4 pieces of wire around a stick!!! If the bugs were tiny, the detail would be appropriate but they are huge!! (I could not tell this by looking at the listing). Really a poor choice for a craftsman but maybe ok for elementary school. Just be aware of what you are getting. I have been disappointed with my amazon purchases a few times in the past but this is the first time I have been tempted to return the book!!

Worked out well. Everything worked as advertised with no problems whatsoever. Keep up the good work and don't require so many words. Thank you.
