Huge mandibles, tiny bumps, and other amazing adaptations—big and little—enable each kind of insect to find food, avoid enemies, or fight for mates. Sandra Markle and Simon Pollard follow their successful Spiders: Biggest! Littlest! with a new feast for young scientific minds. The simple text and captivating full-color photographs offer new insights into the amazing survival skills of the world's most fascinating creatures.
