This charming hand-sized book with its glossy full-color illustrations will slip easily into the pocket or knapsack of a young naturalist heading into the field. Hunter (Possum and the Peeper, 1998, etc.) introduces a dozen small creatures that may be found under a log, including a ground beetle, red eft, field cricket, sow bug, millipede, velvet mite, carpenter ant, and garter snake. Although the drawings are not to scale, the description include the size of every creature in inches. A companion volume, What's In the Pond?, describes a dozen creatures living in and around the pond.
