With my expertise, you'll learn how to hunt your first meal (snail soup anyone?), what makes your abdomen glow (put down the fire extinguisher ), and how to react when your mate wants to eat you for dinner (who knew fireflies could be cannibals?). Buck up, buttercup - you're in for the flight of your life If you know what's good for you, you'll stop goofing around and pay attention to How to Survive as a Firefly, or you might never make it to adulthood

How to Survive as a Firefly provides a unique take on insect science that will entertain and educate in and out of the classroom. Full of opportunities for extended learning, this book includes fun facts hidden throughout the hilarious illustrated story - and after, a glossary of important terms and some real photos of fireflies.
