Broken down into sections exploring each of the main types of insect, each section takes a different, playfully visual approach to really capture the character of the insects in the order being explored. Includes practical advice for observing insects safely and ways to encourage insects into a garden no matter how small. More than one million species of insect have been discovered, but they often go unnoticed. Discover the dung-lovers, pond-dwellers, silk-weavers, and tree-topplers that make life on Earth possible. These beautiful, bizarre, and brilliant insects are worth a closer look.
