4.0 out of 5 stars How to care for your Stick Insect 13 Mar 2011
By Mike W8
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My Grandchildren had handed over to me the responsibility of maintaining their few Indian Stick Insects. I was told that they lived on Privet and I was finding it time consuming roaming the countryside looking for privet. I also collected all or most of the eggs deposited at the bottom of my insect enclosure. As some were hatching out, I wanted to know more about these creatures so purchased the reviewed book. It gave me all the information I required for my particular insects; they would feed on Bramble, Hawthorn, Privet, Ivy etc so for a small outlay for an informative book, it has saved me a lot of time and I now have a large number of stick insects.

Well worth the outlay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stick insect book 4 Oct 2010
By Henry
The book was perfect for what i needed as it was a 5 year old but any grown up would have it read in 10 minutes and would probably want a lot more information. Then again, how much can you say about these sticky little fellas? Good, basic book.
