Overview

"This evening at dusk we went on a beetle hunt . . . there were jewel scarabs, gems of the cloud forest. Some shone like polished gold, silver and bronze," writes fictional scientist Randall Barnes in his 1926 field journal. Barnes takes kids on an amazing adventure through Central America, as he studies some of the most beautiful and fascinating insects on the planet, including stunning blue morpho butterflies, battling Hercules beetles, and bizarre walking sticks. The sixth title in a phenomenally successful series, The Field Guide to Insects is designed to look like an authentic antique journal, filled with interesting maps, sketches, and engaging field notes. Kids will especially enjoy the book's interactive elements, which include eight exotic insects to assemble and a punch-out diorama. Extreme fun for future explorers, ages eight and up.
