Micro Monsters

by Nam Nguyen

Book list The tone of this book is set right off the bat: What does it take to survive in this strife-ridden realm, where cannibalism is common and enemies are indestructible? Subsequent pages take readers through the itty-bitty Thunderdome of the bug world. Each spread offers hyperbolic factoids on different creepy-crawly superstars, from jumping spiders (superpower: Incredible leaping ability ) to mosquitoes (equipment: Two hovering wings, huge eyes, needle-sharp proboscis, super senses ) to honey bees (weakness: Self-destructs when it uses its stinger ). Lesser-known critters are also profiled, including blood flukes, giraffe-necked weevils, and the nearly indestructible water bear, with each formidable fiend rated on intelligence, strength, speed, agility, endurance, and evasion. Hyper-close-up photos detail all manner of stingers, stabbers, pincers, and chompers poking out from plated exoskeletons and hairy abdomens. This entry in the Kingdom series, imported from Australia, is a great way to sneak in some basic science learning amid the din of death and destruction. If kids dare enter.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist
