Hilarious illustrated nonfiction about mosquitos perfect for beginning readers. Conversational text and silly illustrations will have you up all night reading about the most annoying bug on Earth!

Fast mosquito facts:

Distinctive trait: Leaving annoying itchy bites

Diet: Your blood (and nectar and plant juice)

Special talent: Making a terrible whining sound in your ear

The Mosquito covers habitat (mosquitos live everywhere except Antarctica and Iceland!), species (over 3,500!), history (the oldest recorded mosquito was 79 million years ago!) and much more. Although silly and off-the-wall, The Mosquito 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, cockroach and mosquito). 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.
