Synopsis

Bug Wars by Sholto Walker

Have you ever wondered who would win in a fight: a scorpion or a spider, a grasshopper or an ant? Now kids can find out all there is to know about these mean machines and act out battles with their very own plastic bugs, on a pop-up board game. With incredible statistics and amazing facts about each bug, this is fun non-fiction at its best. Learn all about deadly spiders and what they like to eat and how a praying mantis kills its victim. Find out why wasps are important for pollination and how ants work in a hierarchy. Also includes Top Stats card integrated into the artwork, which gives statistics that can be used in a simple game, similar to the popular, Top Trumps. This is an informative and innovative book which will keep kids fascinated for hours on end.

About the Author

Sholto Walker's illustrations are produced both digitally and with more traditional methods. He has found his digitally enhanced line work has given him an opportunity to produce illustrations which give great scope for expressing ideas, while his watercolour drawings usually provide a more gentle response to a commission.
