Overview

From blowing bubbles to spraying acid, the world's insects do amazing things with this under-appreciated part of their anatomy. Discover the wild and weird ways insects use their butts to avoid predators. Spittlebugs blow bubbles from their butts and hide under them, while some caterpillars shoot their poop far from their bodies to throw poop-searching wasps off their trail. Ants and beetles spray acid from their butts into the faces of predators, while some caterpillars and larvae build hide-outs with their poop to keep predators away.

We read this book to our 4 year old son and he loves it. It has lots of good information but is fun to read and has the gross out factor kids love. The illustrations are awesome! Colorful, detailed and accurate as well as cartoonish. I will be purchasing this for all the kids in my life this holiday season.

This book is really fun, and the illustrations are surprisingly accurate. I read some reviews about it being a good boys' book, but the girls read it more than the boys at our school.
