"There are all kinds of bugs lurking just outside the house. Large, vibrant illustrations give readers a close-up peek at these alien-like beasties. Stunning images from scanning electron microscopes give a close-up view of incredible mini beasts, revealing every hair on the back of a flea, the beautiful scales on a moth's wing, and the amazing compound eye of a fly. Kids will discover what a fly likes to eat and how it digests its food or how a pond skater can skim across the surface of water. They will learn how a colony of ants communicates, and find out if their garden might be home to the fastest beetle in the world"-- Provided by publisher
