Did you know that without insects, humankind could not survive?This illustrated, fact-filled title explores the huge variety of insects, with a focus on what makes an insect an insect, the differences between the groups, and why insects are the most important animal group on Earth.Broken down into sections exploring each of the main types of insect, each section takes a different, playfully visual approach to really capture the character of the insects in the order being explored.Includes practical advice for observing insects safely and ways to encourage insects into a garden no matter how small.
