Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Each page has an acetate layer set into heavy stock that details the internal organs of a spider or scorpion, giving the reader a true "look inside". The upper portion of each page has text with more information about the world of spiders and scorpions. Lots of fun facts are presented-did you know tarantulas may live 30 years or more? Or that some scorpions sing? This book provides a fascinating glimpse into the world of creepy-crawlers.
