Overview

Every day we share our lives with billions of miniature monsters. They live in our homes, eat our food, and even sleep in our beds! From the household bedbug to the dung beetle and from stinkbugs to cockroaches, Bugs takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the strange and little-known world of the insects and creepy-crawlies that share our planet.

This book features bugs from every region of the world, drawn from habitats ranging from tropical rain forest to city homes and gardens. All of Earth's grossest, most gruesome, and most monstrous minibeasts are featured, from vicious predators like the ambush bug or bark scorpion to beastly bugs with some very nasty habits.

Illustrated throughout with stunning full-color artwork, each of the entries includes easy-to-follow text, locator maps, and information boxes. Full of facts and interesting snippets, this book is a valuable learning resource as well as a fun read, revealing the spectacular world of nature's smallest—and most incredible— animals.
