Illustrated by Robertson, Matt
Crawly! Hairy! Maybe a bit scary? Snails slime upside down. Eeek! Worms can somersault and butterflies smell like cake. YUM. Wait, don't eat them... Because bugs are truly BRILLIANT! Matt Robertson's quirky text and sweet yet hilarious illustrations show exactly why bugs can be t...ruly awesome in their own unique way. The book includes 14 hilarious globally inclusive, bug-tastic spreads, featuring worms, bees, beetles, dragonflies, butterflies, moths, grasshoppers, spiders, ants, snails and stick insects. Find out how honey bees make their honey, why moths always fly around lamps and how bombardier beetles protect themselves from hungry predators. There's something new to learn about each bug. Did you know that stick insects can dance? Or that snails can stick their eyes all the way in their heads? And guess what? A grasshopper will spit on you if it gets angry! So never make a grasshopper grumpy, don't screech when you see a spider and NEVER EVER anger an ant! There are so many more fun facts to uncover about our tiny furry and slimy friends.Read more
