Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The creators of the award-winning Alphabeasties And Other Amazing Types capture an amazing array of insects in their totally unique and captivating style. While the alphabeasties were comprised of letters, these incredible insects are ingeniously engineered out of numerals. Each entry includes fascinating numeric facts about its subject: An ant has 2 stomachs and 3 body parts, and it can lift 50 times its body weight!

This one-of-a-kind, eye-catching look at the insect world will entertain, engage, and educate stylish young entomologists everywhere!

Review:

"Trading letters for numbers, the creators of Alphabeasties employ a similar format to create silhouette-style portraits of insects, worms, and arachnids using only Arabic numerals. Thus Werner and Forss use 1s, 2s, and 3s, to distinguish between an ant's head, thorax, and abdomen; a mosquito consists of 75s ('They can detect our breath from 75 feet away'); and a group of ladybugs are made up of numerals that correspond to the number of spots on their wings. Add in several liftable flaps and a wealth of facts about the featured species, and this duo has another winner on their hands. Ages 6 — 12.

Synopsis:

The creators of the award-winning Alphabeasties And Other Amazing Types are back, this time with an amazing array of insects: butterflies to termites, dragonflies to walking sticks. While the 'alphabeasties' were comprised of letters, these incredible insects are ingeniously engineered out of numerals. Each entry also includes fascinating numeric facts about its subject. It's an eye-catching and imaginative look at the insect world.
