really liked it
Recommended for: people who like bugs (and aren't afraid of vocabulary)
Read in March, 2008

From this book, I learned how Daddy Longlegs trap and kill their prey. I also learned about bravo bees (killer bees to the dramaprone among us). And gypsy moths and camel crickets and ladybugs (Hubbell goes on a ladybug harvest with a pro: interesting stuff). No essay on cockroaches, though, and that suggests to me that there are lines that even Sue Hubbell won't cross.

I love Hubbell's writing. And I love her enthusiasm and interest in the world around her/us.
