The death’s head hawk moth, the praying mantis, the hornet – the strangest and scariest monsters aren’t always the largest. When it comes to biting, stinging, sucking and generally making the skin crawl, insects, arachnids and other menacing minibeasts have few equals in the natural world. From human lice to locusts, scabies mites to dung beetles, bed bugs to cockroaches, Bugs takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the strange and sometimes frightening world of more than 90 small invertebrates that share our planet.

Illustrated throughout with stunning, full-colour artworks, each of the creepy-crawlies featured includes easy-to-follow text, locator maps and information boxes, with examples drawn from habitats as diverse as the Amazon rainforest, the Sahara Desert and your bedroom. Each animal is illustrated with an annotated full-page main artwork as well as a secondary three-stage story artwork. Full of facts and interesting snippets, the book is a valuable learning resource as well as a fun read, revealing the spectacular world of some of nature’s most fascinating animals.
