Description

A visual and informative guide to the numerous crawly creatures on Earth, now revised and updated in the relaunched DK Eyewitness Books format.

Get up close and personal and be an eyewitness to some of the most successful, adaptable, and numerous crawly creatures on the planet with DK Eyewitness Books: Insect. See how the first animals to fly actually take to the skies; discover the difference between beetles and bugs; witness a wasp building a nest; play hide-and-seek with moths; and learn much more about the anatomy, behavior, habitats, and classification of the billions of insects on Earth.

DK Eyewitness Books: Insect is a visual and informative guide to these fascinating creatures.

Series Overview: Each revised Eyewitness book retains the stunning artwork and photography from the groundbreaking original series, but the text has been reduced and reworked to speak more clearly to younger readers. Still on every colorful page: vibrant annotated photographs and the integrated text-and-pictures approach that makes Eyewitness a perennial favorite of parents, teachers, and school-age kids.
