Inhaltsangabe: Join Dragonia Fly, Anatole Ant, Bupji Beetle, and Madame Flutterby for a glamorous evening as the guests of Lady Bugatti. When Lady Bugatti is your hostess, who knows what will happen next? "The swanky rhythm of the poetry and the often surrealistic art create an excitement of their own."--Booklist.

From School Library Journal: PreSchool-Grade 3-- Maxner returns to the world of insects so creatively and successfully employed in Nicholas Cricket (HarperCollins, 1989) . However, whereas that story had a kind of logic--it was possible to imagine insects and other field creatures congregating at the local cafe to dance to the music of a cricket band--Lady Bugatti, an elegant ladybug, lives in a sophisticated city of the 1920s. The rather labored account tells of an insect dinner party followed by a trip to the theater. The only tension occurs when Lady Bugatti vanishes during the performance, but the mystery is solved when she reappears at the end of the program to present a prize to the winning performer. Hawkes's full-page, richly colored paintings create a fully realized, highly styled art-deco world--one could imagine Fred Astaire dancing down the sweep of staircase where Lady Bugatti makes her first appearance. The guests, Dragonia Fly and Madame Flutterby, are elegantly dressed in the Egyptian and Japanese styles of the time, and great attention has been paid to decorative detail. Hawkes has creatively utilized insect motifs throughout--the murals on the stairs, the neon marquee, and the resplendent theater curtain feature leaping grasshoppers, crickets, and ants. The rather thin text has been richly and inventively interpreted, and children may well be intrigued by the idea of an insect city and the visual consistency with which it is portrayed. However, there is little in the story itself to catch or hold their interest. --Eleanor K. MacDonald, Beverly Hills Pub . Lib .
