9781465446008: Super Bug Encyclopedia

Following on the success of Super Nature Encyclopedia and Super Human Encyclopedia comes Super Bug Encyclopedia — a look at the 100 most amazing insects on the planet!

Using macro photography and brand-new CGI artworks, Super Bug zooms right in to reveal the secrets of the most successful creatures on our planet. With incredible facts and stats for every bug, Super Bug showcases the superstars of the insect world. Find out which insect can snap a pencil in half, how a tiny moth can fly up to 70 miles an hour, and meet a dung beetle that can pull over 1,100 times its own body weight. Young readers will be wowed by what goes on inside the tiny world of ants, spiders, butterflies, moths, crickets, and other creepy crawlies.

Lively, informative, easy-to-access text based on the latest discoveries and scientific research showcases incredible feats of endurance, defense, strength, and speed while graphic, dashboard-style panels provides information at a glance.

Visualized with incredible 3-D models with cross-sections and strip layers, readers can explore every essential detail of the world of insects in Super Bug Encyclopedia.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5 Up—Striking visual content and a wealth of facts and statistics highlight more than 70 profiles of nature's most interesting arthropods. Animals are grouped by broad categories such as anatomy, physical features, hunting, threats to humans, and life cycles. Each spread is devoted to a different species, with particular emphasis on a notable feature, such as the trap-jaw ant's lethal bite or the see-through wings of the glasswing butterfly. Most include a stunning image of the insect along with smaller, captioned photos or diagrams. Varied page layouts and a mixture of backgrounds provide fresh visual looks with each page turn. Articles include an introductory paragraph; an "At a Glance" list covering size, habitat, location, and diet; and a "Stats and Facts" feature, which provides more specific details, such as a graph of the mole cricket's burrowing depth. The large photographs, many of which fill most of a spread, are frequently spectacular: a vivid close-up of the green tiger beetle's head and an amazing view of a cicada nymph shedding its skin are among many first-rate examples, though a few photos lose impact because of the gutter. Cutaway views showing internal physiology and well-chosen spot images add further specific visual content. The index guides readers to individual species within the topical structure, though its usefulness is slightly marred by inconsistency. Though not a comprehensive arthropod encyclopedia, this is a visual feast with engaging content. VERDICT This selection has high appeal for browsers and will be useful for report writers.—Steven Engelfried, Wilsonville Public Library, OR

Review:

"This installment of the Encyclopedia series follows Super Nature and Super Human, both of which were crowd-pleasers." — The Florida Times-Union

"[A] visual feast with engaging content." — School Library Journal (Starred Review)
