Insectpedia: A Brief Compendium of Insect Lore

Eric R. Eaton

This delightful and entertaining collection of insect lore and the storied history of entomology features hand-drawn illustrations, anecdotes, and curious facts about some of the fascinating bug species on the planet. This encyclopedia is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and is perfect for travel.

Insectpedia offers a delightful combination of factual information about insects and the folklore around them, such as “murder hornets,” “jumping beans,” “mole crickets,” and “zombie lady-beetles.” The information is laid out in an A-Z format, making it simple to pick up and read for a couple of minutes to acquire new knowledge. If you enjoy beginning sentences with “Hey, did you know…” as a conversation starter, this is the book for you.
