'Problems' are mailed to agony uncle Dr K Fisher, who then responds to them with sympathy and a wealth of knowledge. Ask Dr K Fisher about Minibeasts answers the problems that plague Earth's insects and creepy-crawlies. The agony uncle patiently responds to each creature's letter - about themselves, their peers and all aspects of minibeast life. Dr K Fisher's replies provide invaluable information about food sources, defence, attack and minibeast habitats.

's Prehistoric Park 'A wonderfully original book.'

'Budding wildlife enthusiasts will be thrilled to meet Dr K Fisher... Children will warm to its grooved-up readability, but far from dumbing down its readers, this book will wise them up.'
