A fun and informative book about the fascinating and bizarre world of bug behaviorDid you know that...a backswimmer spends its life upside down using its back as a boat and its paddle-shaped legs to row itself? Leafcutter ants devote their lives to the care of a fungus that they've cultured for 25 million years? Assassin bugs got their name because of the way they sneak up on prey and stab them with a sword-like mouth part? Nothing is more interesting to kids than bugs, except for weird bugs. In Stink Bugs, Stick Insects, and Stag Beetles, insect expert, scientist, author, and teacher Sally Kneidel digs deep to reveal the strange world of some of the weirdest bugs ever to crawl, swim, climb, or fly around the planet, including stink bugs, burying beetles, robber flies, Madagascan hissing roaches, and many more.Sally Kneidel (Charlotte, NC) taught hands-on science to children in Charlotte, North Carolina. She has a Ph.D. in biology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is the author of eight science books, including Creepy Crawlies and the Scientific Method, and Wiley's bestselling Pet Bugs and More Pet Bugs.
