Summary This comprehensive insect picture book is not for the faint of heart! It's crawling with facts about the lives, bodies, habitats, and defenses of the world's coolest, creepiest, and sometimes crunchiest critters. You may find out more than you ever wanted to -- such as that, when in danger, a dragonfly nymph can make a quick escape by shooting a jet of water from its rear end! Matthew Reinhart's encompassing and fun look at all the juicy facts about insects is sure to enlighten budding young naturalists
