Beetles can be described in many ways – they can be colossal or microscopic, helpful or harmful – they can even be tasty. This is an imaginative introduction to their characteristics and huge variety. Beginning with its life cycle, a range of interesting facts are set amongst watercolour illustrations, and the book ends with a labelled spread of colourful beetles from around the world that have appeared earlier in the book. One of an exciting nature series. The other titles are:
