They crawl up walls, they hide in cracks, they flip, they fly, and sometimes . . . c"rrr"ash. Beetles come in all shapes and sizes, and they are everywhere in this thoroughly buggy, beautifully designed book.
There are striped beetles, spotted beetles, all-over-dotted beetles--and don't forget the noisily gnawing beetles Whether you love bugs or whether the sight of them makes you itch, you'll adore this infested offering from the beloved Denise Fleming.
* “Beetles come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, and Fleming gives an exuberant shout-out to a slew of them in this eye-catching catalogue of backyard nature. . . . Part boisterous read-aloud, part field guide for entomology enthusiasts, this arresting volume has something for everybuggy.” (starred review)
