In this book, kids meet deadly dust-dwellers, toilet terrors, and things that squish, squirm, and slime. There's a hideous creature that can live for months without its head, a beetle that blasts its victims with toxic spray, and five-eyed monsters that vomit on their prey to turn them into mush. Kids love gross, and even the nastiest beasties are helpful in some way.
About the It's True! series

Did you realize that you are surrounded by bugs? Your backyard probably contains millions of creepy crawly ants, beetles and centipedes, not to mention slippery earthworms, slugs and snails. And that's not all -- your house is full of spiders, bedbugs and dust mites. These are weird and fascinating creatures. The featherwing beetle is so small you can hardly see it, but the bird-eating tarantula is as big as a dinner plate (imagine meeting that in the jungle!). Some bugs drink blood; others eat dead skin or cow poo. Some are complete pests (or dangerous); others are essential to our life on this planet. The bug world is full of surprises. Enter at your peril!
