When Eric Carle was asked about why he writes about small creations he paid homepage to his Father and happy memories they had discovering and learning about them as a child. He said, ‘when I was a small boy, my father would take me on walks across meadows and through woods. He would lift a stone or peel back the bark of a tree and show me the living things that scurried about. He’d tell me about the life cycles of this or that small creature and then he would carefully put the little creature back into its home.’ It’s particularly poignant then that the book is also endorsed by The Royal Entomological Society.

In 2012, it was voted the number two children's picture book in a survey of School Library Journal readers. It also won the American Institute of Graphic Arts Award for its illustrations which are bold, colourful and incorporate a collage technique within the drawings.
