Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beetles squeak and beetles glow. Beetles stink, beetles sprint, beetles walk on water. With legs, antennae, horns, beautiful shells, knobs, and other odditiesand#8212;whatand#8217;s not to like about beetles? The beetle world is vast: one out of every four living things on earth is a beetle. There are over 350,000 different species named so far and scientists suspect there may be as many as a million. From the goliath beetle that weighs one fourth of a pound to the nine inch long titan beetle, award-winning author-illustrator Steve Jenkins presents a fascinating array of these intriguing insects and the many amazing adaptations they have made to survive.

Review:

"Jenkins pairs his customarily gorgeous brand of cut- and torn-paper collage with fascinating tidbits in this exploration of the vast world of beetles. Each insect is carefully crafted to highlight its unique characteristics — the feather-horn beetle's fanlike antennae; the striking red markings on the back of a harlequin beetle — and several are shown actual size (terrifying in the case of some like the titan beetle and Fijian long-horn beetle). Readers will learn about basic beetle anatomy, as well as facts about specific species: the Australian tiger beetle 'is the fastest runner in the insect world,' and the titan beetle's jaws are strong enough to 'snap a pencil in half.' Jenkins offers a wealth of information about beetles and presents it impeccably. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
