Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
A green fluorescent beetle, an orange polka-dotted beetle, a black horned beetle, and a bright red beetle are but a few of the beetles featured in this book in the "Really Weird Animals" series. Beetles sport strange names like Giraffe Weevil, Acorn Beetle, Violin Beetle, and Bombardier Beetle and they live all over the world. Clear, concise information in this book is presented in a format with short sections of text inside oval or round bubbles. Vivid photographs, some blown up several hundred times, show close-ups of the creepy, crawly insects. This book is a good science supplement for students who gather report information and for those seeking a unique read. The text is written at a fourth grade level, but the book appeals to a wider range due to its photos and short text. Readers will be surprised to learn that some beetles have the ability to spray chemicals that can paralyze the fingers of people for 24 hours and that some beetles have wing spans bigger than those of a sparrow. End matter consists of a large glossary, an index, and resources for further exploration. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
