It might seem contradictory to say that a book about horrid insects is lovely, but the books from this author are not only informative, interesting and often funny but the books ARE lovely. Nice size, nice paper, well illustrated. Perhaps you have to be a book lover to fully appreciate just what gems these are.

Interesting and readable, both as a 'dip-in' volume or to curl up with to learn and have fun. Some descriptions made me want to scratch!

Brilliant book! I studied life science and am a big fan of popular scientific readings in this field. First when I opened the book and read that Stewart doesn't have a PhD in the field and is just passionate about the subject, I frowned and doubted it would be a credible book to read. But then as I moved on through the pages, I found it a pleasant read and realized that one doesn't have to be a professor to tell good stories about bugs. This is just a book that suits all ages!

There's lots of stories and facts to enjoy on almost every type of bug you ever hoped to avoid. Stewart seems well aware of the dangers of demonizing other creatures and waging chemical war to sterilize the environment, but that doesn't get in the way of the book's true purpose, which is to highlight all the ways these disturbingly powerful creatures can afflict us with pain, destroy our food, and endanger our lives.
