Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
A mix of nature facts and reflection from the author of A Book of Bees--further proof that "the real masterwork that Sue Hubbell has created is her life" (New York Times Book Review). Covers everything from blackflies and gypsy moths to silverfish and ladybugs (the one insect for which "bug-hating" humans have an inordinate fondness). Line drawings.
" Sue Hubbell's enthusiasm for her subject matter is infectious. You may never before cared about such things as the location of a katydid's ears (in its knees), but by the end of this book, you will be regarding silverfish and daddylonglegs with a newfound respect. In addition to painlessly learning systems of taxonomy, you will pick up conversation starters (or stoppers) such as how the 'pecker gnat' got its name, and what insect Nabokov based 'Lolita' on. All this, plus an inexplicably included recipe for Lime Cheesecake Pie."
Terri Nelson, Whole Earth Review, fall 1995
