Did you know that for each person on the planet there are two hundred million insects? EEWWW!!! The fabulous Amy Stewart, of Wicked Plant fame, brings her dark humor to the subject of creepy crawlies in all shapes & sizes with her new book, Wicked Bugs. Hilarious chapters like, “She’s Just Not That Into You” explore the freaky & often unfortunate rituals of bug procreation. From cute little Peruvian caterpillars wielding sharp stinging hairs that cause massive internal bleeding, to a giant stinging hornet whose bite is not only horrendously painful, a pheromone is released letting other wasps in the neighborhood know you’re prime for attacking, you’ll have a good case of the heebie jeebies delving into the dark side of over 100 six & eight legged menacing creatures. Bring it camping for a late night scary read. Included on its pages are beautifully intricate copper etchings & drawing of featured bugs by artist Briony Morrow-Cribbs.
