By: Tom Turpin
248 pages, no illustrations
If you want to get downright buggy, pick up this wonderful collection of insect tales from the "Bug Bowl" guru, Tom Turpin. After you're through, you'll know more about the six-leg kingdom and its occupants than any bookworm that you run across. How does insect suturing work? Which insect did the ancient Egyptians worship as a god? What did Ogden Nash have to say about termites? Which insect produces "Turkey Red" dye? What bug has survived for 300 million years? How does a horse fly manage to fly without its head?
Each tale is easily accessible, provides fun and scientific facts, and is self-contained. Juveniles through adults will be fascinated with the world of Turpin's bugs. The nicely illustrated collection won't give you ants in your pants, but just might put a flea in your ear.
