Ask a Bug

DK. DK, $9.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-7566-7230-0

"The word %E2%80%98bugs' can include not [only] insects but also other creepy crawlies... such as scorpions, millipedes, and woodlice. Come and meet us!" invites this paper-over-board guide to the beetles, butterflies, bees, and more. Full-bleed photographs give readers a closeup view of each species, while small insets show the comparative size of each next to a human hand. Numerous questions are posed to the subjects of each spread ("What do baby ants look like?" "Why do crickets sing?"), and the answers appear amid a multitude of facts that should easily hold the interest of amateur entomologists. Also available: Ask a Dinosaur. Ages 6%E2%80%9310. (Apr.)
