'There are more insects living in the world than all the other animals put together – that's about 200 million insects for every single person!'
And this clear, well thought-out introduction will certainly kindle your curiosity. A range of insects are introduced – wasps, solitary bees, ants, dragonflies – and their behaviour described.
Additional factual sections provide further information, there's a summary of how insects differ from other creatures, also suggestions for further insect investigation.
This beautifully designed book is a mixture of education and inspiration; there's a refreshing enthusiasm to the text ('LISTEN – just by the fence – can you hear that scratching sound?') and the illustrations' lacy, delicate lines and colours draw you into this amazing miniature world.
