With realistic illustrations and creepy fun facts about each bug, this colorful book will fascinate young readers as it brings six different bugs to life in 3-D. Readers will meet a hairy orange spider, a honeybee, a huge red cockroach, a blue beetle, a grasshopper, and a spotted ladybug.
Along the way readers will discover all sorts of fascinating facts, including: there are eight million beetle species; grasshoppers are green because their blood contains no oxygen; ladybugs smell through their feet; and much more.

Praise for Creepy Critters:
"The art’s bright colors and models’ unusual scale will rivet audiences large or small. A quick buzz through buggy biology, equally suitable for reading or exhibition."
