Synopsis

There's nothing quite like the thought of a bunch of bugs to get your skin crawling -- unless it's David Greenberg's irresistibly creepy ideas of what to do with them. This companion volume to Greenberg's bestselling Slugs takes an irreverent look at the world's second most misunderstood creatures. Whether for a gourmet recipe or a bit of sibling mischief, the uses dreamed up in Greenberg's subversive verses, illustrated with Lynn Munsinger's sly, witty watercolors, will delight bug lovers and bug haters alike.
