Some of our world's most intriguing animals are among its creepiest. This new series spotlights six mini-beasts that scurry, crawl, wriggle, or hop. Each book matches clear text with up-close (and often startling) photos to give young readers an easy-to-follow introduction to the featured creature's body, growth process, behavior, food sources, and common habitats. Each title concludes with an activity that emphasizes a defining physical characteristic.

Praise For Creepy Creatures: Worms

A clean layout, featuring large type on a white background and full-color photos, gives the new "Creepy Creatures" series a fresh, bright look..Helpful back matter includes instructions for making cricketlike sounds, a glossary, an index, and a list of recommended books and websites. Other animals covered in this series include centipedes, mantises, scorpions, spiders, and worms.

Riveting, close-up photos of mantises looking inscrutably at readers and brightly lit centipedes and spiders either in natural settings or cut out placed on blank backgrounds will draw young audiences to these introductions. The texts have two or three large-type sentences per page, and each volume includes a quick craft as well as a four-item list of print and web resources. .both the illustrations and their subjects are high-interest.
