Creep and Flutter: The Secret World of Insects and Spiders

Jim Arnosky. Sterling, $14.95 (40p) ISBN 978-1-4027-7766-0
Combining larger-than-life illustrations and thoughtful field notes, Arnosky takes readers on a tour of insect life. Foldout spreads display mayflies, dragonflies, beetles, butterflies, moths, and more, with each insect vividly described: “The preying mantis is the T. Rex of the insect world.” As with his other nature-themed books, Arnosky brings a personal and improvisational feeling to his work, including pencil sketches and writing that shares his own experiences (“We once lived in a woodland that was infested by gypsy moths.... They covered our roof, our walkway, and our road”). Arnosky’s inquisitive spirit and gentle prose will likely move readers to take his cue to “be mindful of the small.” Ages 6–10. Agent: Susan Schulman, Susan Schulman Literary Agency. (Apr.)
