Up close with bugs

by Siy, Alexandra; illustrated by Kunkel, Dennis
Paperback Holiday House, 2018


From the Publisher
Amazing micrograph photography helps readers find out if bugs get an undeserved bad rap in this nonfiction picture book.

Bugs bite, drink blood, and eat food in our fields and gardens. Is bugging a crime? Decide for yourself! Read "rap sheets" on the major categories of insects, and marvel at photomicrographs that magnify bug parts by 10 to 300,000 times! But once you've learned about insect habits, you may come to agree that bugs are our friends... not our foes. Meticulous research combined with lively writing and a kid-friendly approach to turn learning about insects into an intriguing case. First published in hardcover as Bug Shots, this title is being repackaged as a companion to Up Close with Spiders (Spidermania).
