About this book

Why Do Bugs Bite and Sting? also features other questions and answers about creepy crawlies. Why do bugs stay so small, have lots of legs, lay lots of eggs, live in groups, change shape, or need wings? Children are fascinated by insects and other creepy crawlies, and Why Do Bugs Bite and Sting? will answer all of the questions they most frequently ask. Steve Parker's simple and informative text explains how different bugs live and why they behave as they do, while Graham Rosewarne's stunning illustrations reveal each tiny creature in vivid detail. This is the perfect introduction for 5- to 8-year-olds to the wonderful and mysterious world of bugs. Bugs, creepy crawlies, minibeasts...these are names we use for all sorts of small creatures, including beetles, flies and other insects, spiders, scorpions and other arachnids, snails, slugs and other molluscs, centipedes, millipedes, leeches and worms. What all of these creatures have in common is that they are invertebrates: animals without backbones. Some bugs bite and sting us – but it's nothing personal! Why do they do it? The answer to this and many other questions can be found in Why Do Bugs Bite and Sting?, which will show you their fascinating world, and will help you to understand how they live their tiny lives.
