Summary

Summary

For ages 4-8. Some fearful-looking insects are best left alone. Others are non-threatening little creatures. But how do you tell one from another, and why are they that way anyway? This delightful book tells all about some of these insects and why we should steer clear of them or relax. All are delightfully and realistically illustrated in full-colour, and treated to the author's witty descriptions and end-verses.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Will You Sting Me? Will You Bite? The Truth About Some Scary-Looking Insects by Sara Swan Miller, illus. by Rick Chrustowski, reveals the real deal about some of nature's creepiest creatures in poetry. Information about the blood-sucking mosquito, for example, is followed by "The Whiner": "You'll hear her whining day or night/ (I think she needs a tissue!)/ The only time she seems to smile/ Is right before she sticks you." Realistic illustrations let budding entymologists examine the insects up close. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
