Bugs in the Backyard

More than 30 extraordinary insects that live just outside the back door.

Bugs in the Backyard is a spectacular collection of the weird and wonderful world of backyard creepy crawlies.

There are all kinds of bugs lurking just outside the house. Large, vibrant illustrations give readers a close-up peek at these alien-like beasties.

Stunning images from scanning electron microscopes give a close-up view of incredible minibeasts, revealing every hair on the back of a flea, the beautiful scales on a moth's wing, and the amazing compound eye of a fly.

Kids will discover what a fly likes to eat and how it digests its food or how a pond skater can skim across the surface of water. They will learn how a colony of ants communicates, and find out if their garden might be home to the fastest beetle in the world.

An authoritative collection, suitable for home or school.


Camilla de la Bédoyère is a zoologist and geologist who has written or edited more than 200 books for children and adults. She is the author of Creatures of the Dark and Monsters of the Deep.
