Owen Davey’s dynamic art and witty informational tidbits shine a light on the toughest bugs in the insect world: those brawny beetles! Did you know that there are roughly 400,000 different species of beetles? These incredible creatures make up about 25% of all animals on our planet! Beetles are superbly adapted to life in various climates across the world, wherever trees and flowers are found. From the mighty Goliath beetle to the beautiful iridescent scarab beetle, this captivating and stunningly illustrated guide will teach you everything you need to know about these fascinating insects.
It’s a book about beetles, and also a work of art that I kind of want to display in my living room? The cover is fantastic, and the illustrations throughout are stylish and well-designed. There’s a lot of information in here and it’s well-presented and interesting, but it is a little difficult to read straight through. I want the whole collection!
