April 2014 Book of the Month Search high and low to discover interesting facts, track down odd information and dispel myths about the insect world. This interactive illustrated approach to nature guides suitable for 5 years upwards is packed full of amazing information and fun illustrations for children to pore over. A handy magnifying glass is provided to help you investigate the hidden details within each spread - there are over 100 little extras waiting to be found. It is a fun and informative insight into the world of the smallest critters and their private lives. No leaf is left unturned.

And, once you've searched and found everything in the book why not turn your hand to the garden or even the corners and crevices in the rooms in your house - how many creepy crawlies can you find and then you can match them up to those in Bug Detective.
