PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY
“Curators from the Natural History Museum in London present a fascinating gallery of insects in this richly photographed work. […] It is rewarding just to peer at the handsome photographs and to discover, for instance, that the Goliath beetle resembles an Art Nouveau brooch, or that the leaf beetle is downright cute. The text accompanying each photograph is rarely longer than five sentences and offers facts about, among other topics, distribution (the ubiquitous stink bug is “almost cosmopolitan” in its dispersion around the world) and size (the Atlas moth sports a 10-inch to 12-inch wingspan), as well as humor (lantern bugs are “supposed to taste like bacon, ” according to aficionados in Madagascar). […] this book of little creatures will be a welcome arrival for amateur entomologists.”
