Publisher Comments:

The natural world experts at National Geogrpahic present the ultimate reference book on BUGS for kids. Nature photographer and National Geographic Magazine contributor Darlyne Murawski has compiled the definitive reference resource for children ages 7-11, in a book crawling with fascinating facts, lively text, and tons of cool, colorful, images of the weirdiest and wackiest insects on planet Earth!

Welcome to the hidden world of the most popular bugs on Earth. Opening the beautiful and accessible pages of this book is like turning over a series of stones under which you'll find a fascinating array of the world's coolest creepy-crawlies. 

This fully photographic book profiles bugs, beetles, wasps, bees, ants, caterpillars, butterflies, dragonflies, spiders, flies, crickets and grasshoppers, and centipedes and millipedes. These profiles are accompanied by "Did you know?" facts and fast facts including scientific name, size, diet, and habitat. Front matter includes a "how to use" spread and thematic spreads covering topics from prehistoric insects to bugs around the world. In short, this book includes everything a young fact hound needs to discover the weird, wacky, diverse, and fascinating world of bugs. 

Like Ultimate Dinopedia in the same series, Ultimate Bugopedia is destined to find a place on the shelves of schools, libraries, and homes across America.
