Reviews

* Combining larger-than-life illustrations and thoughtful field notes, Arnosky takes readers on a tour of insect life. Foldout spreads display mayflies, dragonflies, beetles, butterflies, moths, and more, with each insect vividly described. . . . As with his other nature-themed books, Arnosky brings a personal and improvisational feeling to his work, including pencil sketches and writing that shares his own experiences. . . . Arnosky's inquisitive spirit and gentle prose will likely move readers to take his cue to be mindful of the small. Publishers Weekly (Starred review)
