About this title

Synopsis:

From the creators of "The Bug Book" comes an in-depth look at 13 caterpillars found in various parts of the world. Through lively prose and strikingly illustrated double-page spreads, the caterpillar's anatomy, growth process, and interesting, sometimes bizarre, behavior is discussed, thus showing the reader how fascinating these tiny creatures can be. Full color.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Introducing the green grappler, the hickory horned devil, the bagworm, and ten other crawlers. This splendid companion to The Big Bug Book (1994) will have budding entomologists poring over the pages. Each spread displays a greatly enlarged, dramatically colored caterpillar; along the bottom of the illustration runs a line of smaller drawings of the stages of growth--egg, caterpillar, pupa, adult moth--often hard to come by in much more difficult books. The accompanying text is precise, informative, but above all, exciting. In a description of anatomy, the author notes that caterpillars can ``twist and turn better than any human acrobat because they have four thousand muscles. Humans have only 670 skeletal muscles.'' Individual descriptions include the details children relish: Tent caterpillar moths have no mouth parts; there are over 800 kinds of bagworms, each building its own style of bag with silk and twigs; and the lily-leaf caterpillar makes a waterproof sleeping bag of a folded leaf. Exemplary. (Picture book/nonfiction. 3+) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
