Last of the Sandwalkers by Jay HoslerIn the tradition of Watership Down - an intrepid beetle discovers a whole world beyond her desert home in this bug's-eye adventure! Nestled in the grass under the big palm tree by the edge of the desert there is an entire civilization - a civilization of beetles. In this bug's paradise, beetles write books, run restaurants, and even do scientific research. One such scientist is Lucy, who leads a team of researchers out into the desert. Their mission is to discover something about the greater world...but what lies in wait for them is going to change everything Lucy thought she knew. Beetles are not the only living creatures in the world.
Bleeding Cool Hosler s cartooning is no less meticulous than his writing and similarly retains a sense of animated energy and humor, engaging readers with characters that are far from human, but filled with humanity.
School Library Journal Perfect for the bug-loving reader, this is also book to grow into, with layers of science learning opportunities (including a handful of potshots at creationism) that broaden appeal and encourage multiple readings.
Publishers Weekly Entomologist Hosler offers an epic adventure that delivers an astonishing amount of information in its interstices . . . the clarity of its theme and appeal of its characters carry the day.
