From the PublisherA clean layout, featuring large type on a white background and full-color photos, gives the new "Creepy Creatures" series a fresh, bright look..Helpful back matter includes instructions for making cricketlike sounds, a glossary, an index, and a list of recommended books and websites. Other animals covered in this series include centipedes, mantises, scorpions, spiders, and worms.
Riveting, close-up photos of mantises looking inscrutably at readers and brightly lit centipedes and spiders either in natural settings or cut out placed on blank backgrounds will draw young audiences to these introductions. The texts have two or three large-type sentences per page, and each volume includes a quick craft as well as a four-item list of print and web resources. .both the illustrations and their subjects are high-interest.
