Like its companion book, Wicked Plants, this book is gorgeous. The drawings are gorgeous, and that's saying a lot for a book about bugs. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I love pretty books.

Bugs (and other creepy-crawlies) are truly fascinating. I learned a lot! I liked this book better than Wicked Plants because "bugs" have so much more variety than plants. (Being more mobile than plants, I think they can simply be more creative.)


Parasites. I hate parasites. No, seriously, an irrational fear. Can I say it again? I HATE PARASITES.

Every time I have an itch now, I fear that I have some horrifying infestation.

p.s. I know that bugs are technically only insects of the order Hemiptera, (thank you high school biology and wikipedia) and the author knows it, too, but it's easier to type than "insects and arachnids, etc."
