Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tiniest of creatures loom monstrously into view in this east-to-use, bigger-than-life rendezvous with bugs, complete with 3-D lenses built right in. From butterflies, caterpillars, and bumblebees to scorpions, tarantulas, and praying mantises, each tiny creature is vividly rendered in uncanny depth and detail through the miricle of Mark Blum's stereoscopic photographs. WIth fory-four eye-popping 3-D images, fact-filled captions, and a helpful glossary, Bugs in 3-D will make you bug-eyed with wonder.

Review:

"[A]bsolutely breathtaking....[W]ill have readers wishing for more photos. Unlike the 3-D books with the blue-and-red glasses, these images truly jump off the page. The depth of field achieved is remarkable. The book is a wonderful introduction not only to the field of entomology, but also to photography." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Spiders, scorpions, and wasps, oh my! The creepiest, crawliest, and hairiest bugs are featured in this amazing collection of 3-D photographs. Tarantulas, millipedes, flies, bumblebees, beetles, and all sorts of other tiny critters loom monstrously into view with fascinating and alarming detail in this foolproof 3-D experience. Complete with lenses innovatively bound into the hardback cover at precisely the right viewing distance (as in the very popular Beneath the Sea in 3-D), Bugs in 3-D will open your eyes to the amazing world of the little creatures around us. With informative captions and a fun glossary of terms, this new volume brings you face to face with tarantula hawks, Clemence's blue butterflies, zebra tarantulas, tussock moth caterpillars, dragon-headed katydids, and hordes of other bugs sure to delight and terrify nature lovers of all ages.
