Bugs: A Pop-up Journey into the World of Insects, Spiders and Creepy-crawlies (Hardback)Dr George McGavin (author)
- In stock
A beautifully illustrated look inside the fascinating world of creepy-crawlies, with stunning three-dimensional pop-ups.
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 life.
