Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The minute I opened [Wild Reads], my kids, aged 8 and 5, devoured them They are filled with colorful, very detailed drawings to interest the non-readers, and have large print for young readers. The books don't talk down to the kids, however. There are plenty of big words to learn, but each book comes with a handy glossary in the back These books help make nonfiction more accessible to children and show that nonfiction can be just as fun and interesting as fiction." —Wired Magazine, GeekDad

"This compact short little thriller just buzzes with bewitching bee facts that will feed children's curiosity about these busy bodies." —San Francisco Book Review
