  We are going to take a journey into the world of insects, those creatures which have been around for “four hundred million years evolving” and which can do all kinds of remarkable and unexpected things.  
  So off we go to explore the lives and worlds of stink bugs, aphids, bombardier beetles, flies, caterpillars, antlions, fireflies, and many others. Who would have thought that there were so many kinds of flies and did you know that aphid mothers give birth to “clones” of themselves? Imagine what it would be like to shoot “boiling hot acid” at ones enemies and did you know that insects can send out chemical signals to warn and inform others of their kind?
  Not only are these poems informative and entertaining, but many of them are also visual, the author using her words to create pictures on the pages. In addition, to accompany many of the poems, the author provides further information about the insects described in the poems. Finally the author has written some “Poetry Notes” which describe the poetry forms that she used in each of the nineteen poems
  To provide a fitting backdrop and accompaniment to the poems Leslie Evans has created beautiful print like illustrations executed in bright colors and bold lines.
