World's Strangest Creepy-Crawlies (Lonely Planet Kids)
Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

Enter the weird and wonderful world of creepy-crawlies. Our animal experts have unearthed 40 of the planet's most bizarre species and ranked them in order of their oddness! With jaw-dropping facts and amazing photos, we reveal each creature's seriously strange characteristics and the unusual ways they hunt, eat, or defend themselves.

They're sometimes hard to spot, but there are a mind-boggling 10 billion billion bugs on the planet. Inside World's Strangest Creepy-Crawlies, discover the tiny terror that blows itself up to save its friends, a creature so well disguised even its own species can't see it, and a giant spider the size of a dinner plate. And with our 'strange-o-meter', compare each animal based on its creepiness, fight factor, and superpowers!
