My Awesome Summer by P. Mantis by Paul Meisel

The hilarious--and scientifically accurate--tale of a praying mantis's eventful summer

"May 17: I was born today! It's a beautiful, sunny spring day!" This is the diary of P. Mantis, one of 150 praying mantis brothers and sisters born on a garden bush. P. Mantis is an amazing bug: she can make herself look like a stick to hide from predators, she can swivel her head all the way around, and when she's grown up she'll even be able to fly! Told in dated entries, P. Mantis describes the entirety of her life, sharing the fun and beauty of her world as well its little ups and downs ("I ate one of my brothers. Okay, maybe two").
