Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ever get together with 750 million friends? That's how many ladybugs can spend the winter in one clump-right in your backyard. Under your steps, in your trees, and beneath your grass, millions of insects are on the hunt. In BUG BITES, award-winning author Diane Swanson delves into the world of these hungry creatures. Readers age eight to twelve will discover how the assassin bug got its name and how the robber fly liquifies its prey. Did you know that a praying mantis can turn its head up, down, and sideways? Or that it nibbles its prey from end to end like corn-on-the-cob? This book is a close-up look at the strangest appetites and hairiest legs around.

Synopsis:

It's a bug-eat-bug world out there! From the tasty snacks of the praying mantis to a dragonfly's favorite dinner, "Bug Bites" reveals mealtime's creepiest details. Did you know that robber flies spear their prey with a dagger like beak, or that wasps may paralyze their insect victims? Full-color photographs along with captivating text by award-winning author Diane Swanson will leave you hungry for more.
