Enter the hidden world of insects with Jean Henri Fabre's 18 illustrated essays, rendered in lively, poetic language. Whether extolling the maternal instincts of the Sacred Beetle or chronicling the protracted and ultimately fatal mating ritual of the Languedocian Scorpion, Fabre engages readers with his earnest, playful delight in the creatures that are often shunned or go unnoticed.

About the Author

French entomologist Jean Henri Fabre (1823-1915) is considered the father of modern entomology and was hailed by Darwin as "the Homer of insects." Chiefly self-educated, he devoted most of his life to the observation of insects as they hunted, mated, built nests, and guarded their young. His lively, poetic style has attracted a wide audience of readers.
