With collage and cut paper, Steve Jenkins brings a multitude of colorful beetles to seeming life. His trademark expansive white backgrounds are perfectly suited to display a carefully chosen array of beetles in all their peculiar glory. Scattered throughout the book are rows of beetle silhouettes showing their actual size, while the large depictions display strange and interesting features. Filled with hand-lettered scientific information and dramatic pictures, this book will captivate young entomologists - and create them.
