About this book

Fancy meeting a foot-long centipede or a spider the size of your dinner plate? With Minibeasts with Jess French, you can do just that from the safety and comfort of your sofa.

With her unparalleled zeal for insects, Jess French dives headfirst into the breathtaking world of invertebrates to explore their unbelievable adaptations and evolution and reveal incredible invertebrates from all over the world, from bird-eating tarantulas and glow-in-the-dark scorpions to metre-long stick insects and bat-eating centipedes.

Learn about the perfect co-evolution of nectar-drinking insects and the flowers they pollinate and discover how minibeasts mate, fight, hide, collaborate, evolve and survive in the most extreme conditions.

Jess's exuberant text enlightens readers on the fascinating and sometimes intense world of the minibeast, revealing everything from firefly Morse code to mid-flight kamikaze mating.
