Synopsis

Insects by Sandra Markle

Here are twenty-one sex-legged wonders from around the world--from the 22-inch-long Giant Stick Insect of Borneo to North America's Western Pygmy Blue Butterfly, with a wingspan of just a half inch. Huge mandibles, tiny bumps, and other amazing adaptations--big and little--enable each kind of insect to find food, avoid enemies, or fight for mates. Sandra Markle and Simon Pollard follow their successful Spiders: Biggest! Littlest! with a new feast for young scientific minds. The simple text and captivating full-color photographs offer new insights into the amazing survival skills of the world's most fascinating creatures.

Reviews

Few opportunities are possible for either adults or children to view an elephant weevil, male stalk-eyed flies, whitefly larvae, or Hercules beetle as closely as this book offers. -- Kirkus Reviews

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
