Bugs in the Backyard is a spectacular collection of the weird and wonderful world of backyard creepy crawlies.

There are all kinds of bugs lurking just outside the house. Large, vibrant illustrations give readers a close-up peek at these alien-like beasties.

Stunning images from scanning electron microscopes give a close-up view of incredible minibeasts, revealing every hair on the back of a flea, the beautiful scales on a moth's wing, and the amazing compound eye of a fly.

Kids will discover what a fly likes to eat and how it digests its food or how a pond skater can skim across the surface of water. They will learn how a colony of ants communicates, and find out if their garden might be home to the fastest beetle in the world.

An authoritative collection, suitable for home or school.
