GARDEN CREEPY CRAWLIES


GARDEN CREEPY CRAWLIES

MICHAEL CHINERY    Book Number: 84804    Product format: Hardback

We love to celebrate nature here at Bibliophile, and this book opens up the world of the creepy crawlies in our garden. With facts combined with illustrations, the reader is able to identify exactly what extraordinary creatures can be found in their backyard. In a world where spiders' webs are described as silvery hammocks on account of the gum they leave on the web turning to dew, and butterflies play 'king of the castle' with flowers they claim as their own territory, smalls bugs become big worlds that add drama to the outdoors. Each chapter is accompanied by an anecdote from Michael Chinery, who has been writing on natural history and biology since 1962, adding a personal touch to the descriptions of these insects, whether he is providing tips on how to remove ticks using a lit cigarette, or remembering a bumble bee setting up house in a bicycle saddle bag. Through this extraordinary guide, fall in love with small animals with huge personalities. Illustrations, 172pp.
