Product Details

Praise

“[a] celebration of nature’s strangeness and wild wonders.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Lush, colorful illustrations that present riots of leaves and blooms that initially capture the eye reveal garden violence on closer inspection.”Kirkus Reviews

“Meisel uses gorgeous, vividly painted illustrations and a gentle text to share the story of the life cycle of a praying mantis. . . . The perfect introduction to the life cycle of the praying mantis for those ready to handle a mantid-eat-mantid world.”—School Library Journal

“The bright, large-scale illustrations are full of details, which readers will likely delight in poring over, especially in wide-angle scenes where P. Mantis might be harder to spot. Perfect for . . . readers who like education with a dose of entertainment.”Booklist

“In a pithy journal-like text, first-person (first-insect?) narrator P. Mantis provides readers with an up-close look at her five-month-long life cycle.”— Horn Book
