Book News Annotation:
Bright colors stair-stepped along the fore edge of this easy-to-use introductory insectopedia indicate its major categories: butterflies; moths; beetles; wasps, ants, and sawflies; two-winged flies; lacewings and snakeflies; sucking bugs; grigs; mantids; dragonflies and damselflies; springtails; aquatic adults; aquatic larvae; and non- insect arthropods. Within each of these categories, single pages feature particular insects represented by a large, color drawing, a highlighted box providing size and habitat, and a demotic and informative 250-300 word annotation. Acorn, a bug enthusiast, has chosen the biggest, most colorful, hardest to miss, or weirdest 125 of the approximately 25,000 species thought to inhabit Washington and Oregon.
