Bite into Bloodsuckers by Kari-Lynn Winters, Ishta Mercurio

Most people hear the word vampire and they think of shady, nocturnal characters with capes and pointed teeth. But that's all pretend...right? Wrong! Blood-thirsty creatures are real--but not in the ways you might be imagining them! In fact, there are trillions of vampires creeping, crawling, swimming, buzzing and even flying among us. Whether they are the fleas that love your pets as much as you do, the bedbugs that snuggle in with you at night, the lampreys that eat your fish dinner before you do, or the seemingly innocent butterflies that flutter above, these vampires come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and species.Bloodsucking creatures are known for their irritating habits. They pierce your skin, drink your blood, and sometimes spread diseases. They range from highly annoying to deadly. It's difficult to love them, but these hungry critters are a necessity in our global ecosystems and they can even be beneficial. Filled with fascinating and sometimes gory information, full-colour photos, interactive activities, and educational diagrams and charts, Bite into Bloodsuckers is sure to get under your skin and run through your veins!
