A fascinating pop-up journey into the hidden world of insects, spiders, and other creepy-crawlies.

Larger-than-life bugs spring from the pages, peek out from behind flaps, and hide under tabs, inviting young entomologists to marvel at the mind-boggling variety of arthropod life. What reader can resist a chance to look inside a cockroach’s body to see how it works or open a wasps’ nest to see what’s inside? Useful information (why does the world need bees?) and scientific trivia (which beetles are strongest and fastest?) pack every page, while exquisite art and dramatic pop-ups bring the world of bugs to teeming life.

George McGavin, a renowned entomologist, is an honorary research associate at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and the Department of Zoology of Oxford University. He has several insect species named in his honor. He lives in England.

Jim Kay worked in the archives of the Tate Gallery and the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, two experiences that heavily influence his work. He is the illustrator of A Monster Calls, in which he used everything from beetles to breadboards to create interesting marks and textures. He lives in England.

This bug lover’s delight teems with arthropod images and facts. ... [H]atchling naturalists will swarm over this like ants at a picnic.
—Kirkus Reviews

[A] fascinating book about arthropods that poises pop-up engineering and text in admirable balance. Each spread has at least one magnificent pop-up... With Kay’s surprisingly pretty watercolors and trompe l’oeil touches, a handwritten-looking typeface and masses of detail... Beautiful.
—The New York Times Online
