An Illustrated Guide to Cockroaches

An Illustrated Guide to Cockroaches Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

City dwellers, especially in places like Manhattan, grow accustomed to having several hundred uninvited houseguests in their homes at all times: cockroaches. Slinking in the shadowy hollows between walls, under sinks, and along the floorboards, the ubiquitous urban insects are loathsome to most and frightening to many. But you only fear what you don’t know. Ekaterina Smirnova’s An Illustrated Guide to Cockroaches will help everyone terrified of their six-legged roommates: through Smirnova’s illustration and explanation, the entire life-cycle of the typical cockroach is laid bare. Part humorous, part disgusting, An Illustrated Guide to Cockroaches is a necessary component of every urban bookshelf.
