"Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson writes about insects with such enthusiasm
and affection, you'll wish you were an entomologist! But it's never
too late to develop a love for bugs, and Buzz, Sting, Bite
is the perfect guide--filled with surprising, fascinating, and
often extremely funny stories."--Thor Hanson, author of Buzz: The
Nature and Necessity of Bees
"If you want to spend a few hours glorying in the unconsidered world of insects, and marveling at a new fact every page or two . . . then Buzz, Sting, Bite is a joy."
--The Times (London)
"The author possesses an infectious enthusiasm for the bugs she profiles and manages to imbue every maxilla and mating habit with wonder. . . . Buzz, Sting, Bite will foster affection for its winged, creeping, and crawling subjects, even among its most bug-shy readers."--Booklist
"Charming. . . . Sverdrup-Thygeson strives to make you like insects, too, highlighting them in all their buzzing, stinging, biting glory."--Sam Kean "The New York Times Book Review "
