Review:

Dourlot's gallery of arthropods is a visually arresting introduction to insects and spiders.... Certainly [her] fascination enlivens a text that both marvels about a creature's life cycle and behavior and appreciates its contribution in both sound and sight to the overall natural landscape... Durable both physically and in content, Dourlot's striking tome promises active library usage.--Gilbert Taylor"Booklist" (12/01/2009)
