Young readers will definitely catch the bug when they see this enticing, fact-filled invitation to explore the world of insects.

A Junior Library Guild Selection

Right now, all around us, thousands of insects are doing strange and wonderful things: wasps are building nests, ants are collecting food, and dragonflies are readying for the hunt. But it’s not always easy to catch sight of these six-legged creatures: you have to know where to look. Guided by this book, readers will happily become insect detectives and find out just what those bugs are up to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real treasure 21 Aug 2010

I purchased this item for my 7 year old great niece who was coming for a visit. When it arrived I could not believe how delicate and beautiful the illustrations were. My great niece loved it and from the way she looked after it, it was obvious that she thought it was special. I certainly thought so. Pictures apart, the information lay out was great and well written. all in all, a real winner.

Lovely illustrated book really enjoyed by our eight years old grandaughter. When a little younger she found it fascinating searching the garden for different insects, turning over small boulders and looking underneath thick logs. Would definitely recommend this book.
