Review quote

This stunning array of spectacular bugs is a companion volume to Erich Hoyt's equally eye-catching Weird Sea Creatures. A gallery of brilliantly clear, color photos gives intimate, close-up looks at just 59 of the millions of insects crawling, flying, scurrying, and burrowing on our planet, but Worek's choices open up a visual treasure house of the class Insecta. From metallic armored beetles to lacy-winged flies to spiny caterpillars, the pictures glow on the crisp white pages... This is not a book for in-depth research, but for the curious of mind and those with an understanding of biological diversity and evolutionary differentiation, it's a visual feast and--oh my--those pictures!--Patricia Manning"School Library Journal" (12/01/2013)show more
