Book Review: Let's Peep Into The Insect World
Book: Let's Peep Into The Insect World
Author: Katie Bagli
“The Emerald Moth caterpillar cleverly sticks flower petals all along its body length. This makes it look like a weird, moving flower and would never arouse the attention of its predators. When the petals dry up, they replace them with fresh ones.”
Katie Bagli has written many books on nature. In each of her books she takes up one element of wildlife, like Mangroves, Bees, Flowers, Insects, etc. and elaborates on them, sharing many fun facts and trivia.
Recently, I read her book Let's Peep Into The Insect World and found it interesting. In this book the author describes variety of insects and gives a short summary on each of them. Each section has beautifully illustrated pictures that show different behaviours of these insects in their natural habitat. Her way of writing helps imagine and understand the insect better.
Two of my favourite chapters are the Emerald Moth Caterpillar and The Big Fat Wedding of the Ants.
