The Lovereading4Kids comment

Loads of facts about about all manner of creepy crawlies -an ant with Dracula fangs, spiders eating their own webs, musclebound caterpillars and why fleas would be champions at the high jump. The science that underpins it is good making it a useful source of knowledge as well as fun to read. A great series to get kids into reading. Titles in the series include Human Body, History, Creepy Crawlies and Animals.

It’s hard to get much grosser than creepy crawlies! The thought of them is enough to give most people the shivers and, when you hear about their most gruesome characteristics, it is not surprising. Within all kinds of funny and ridiculous stories, this is a book packed with facts about flies, bees, beetles and even caterpillars.

Reviews

Mitch knows more totally useless things about useless subjects than anybody on Earth * Chris Tarrant * Animals, creepy crawlies and the human body are tackled in a Horrible Histories way, and each book is packed with the sort of disgusting trivia that delights children under eight. -- Toby Clements * The Telegraph *
