About this book

In this wonderful new book Sue Hubbell takes us into the remarkable lives of the little-known creatures that really run the world: earthworms, corals, lightning bugs, pill bugs, millipedes, crickets, spiders, sea urchins, horseshoe crabs, and, most elusive and enigmatic of all, Aphrodite, the sea mouse. She also leads us on a journey through the mysteries of time – geological, biological, and personal – as she writes of the evolution of life on this planet and the evolution of her own life, from childhood next to a Michigan graveyard to beekeeping in the Ozarks and finally to a tower by the sea in Maine, where she waits and watches for Aphrodite.

Media reviews

"In this random walk among the invertebrates, she picks her essay subjects cleverly, selecting animals, like millipedes and woodlice, sea urchins and spiders, that we all know but know very little about. This is a top-level popularization and I wish we had more of it."
- Martin Wells, Dept of Zoology, Cambridge Univ, New Scientist
