Hilarious illustrated non-fiction about cockroaches perfect for beginning readers. You’ll bug out over this perfect pairing of humorous text and funny illustrations about this insect that’s been around for over 335 million years!
Fast cockroach facts:
Distinctive trait: Flat and oval-shaped body
Diet: Everything! (Especially if it’s greasy and sweet…)
Special talent: Running
The Cockroach covers lifestyle (cockroaches prefer the dark and only come out during the day when their colonies get big enough), anatomy (cockroaches have wings but rarely fly), habitat (they prefer heat to cold), life cycle (a female can give birth to up to 350 babies during her lifetime) and much more. Although silly and off-the-wall, The Cockroach contains factual information that will both amuse and teach at the same time.
Series Overview: Each book in the Disgusting Critters series is a clever and very funny look at a particular insect or animal (fly, worm, slug, toad, head lice, rat, spider, bat and cockroach). The off-the-wall humor and fun, strangely adorable graphic approach by a Governor General’s Award-winning illustrator set this series apart from traditional non-fiction treatments.
