Discover why cicadas are all the BUZZ. Every year, annual cicadas emerge and pierce the air with their buzzing calls. Also every year, at least one brood of thirteen-year or seventeen-year cicadas emerges in some part of the eastern or central United States. In the spring of 2011, a giant brood will hatch in parts of Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Just in time, renowned author Laurence Pringle and accomplished nature illustrator Meryl Henderson have created the most complete, comprehensive book for kids about these noisy but harmless insects. This is the story of an insect that deserves to be protected.

"[A] clearly written, informative introduction." --Booklist

"This smoothly written, beautifully illustrated title will fill a gap in most collections." --School Library Journal

* "Even though the format is aimed toward younger readers, the depth of information would make it an appropriate source for older readers in search of research material. The beautiful illustrations would also make this book feasible as an informative read-aloud." --Library Media Connection, starred review
