Packed with freaky facts and random trivia, this is the perfect guide to everything you ever wanted to know (and lots of things you might never have wanted to know) about BUGS – Horrid Henry style!

My Review
You cannot read this book in isolation. You simply must have an audience. The facts in this book are gross and tantalizing. I couldn’t stop myself and read it out loud to many ohhs and awwwws.

Simon’s give a break down of the families in the bug world. There are examples and pictures.

Did you know there is an earthworm in Africa that’s seven metres long!

This is a disgusting, unhygienic, and thrilling read. I’d use this as part of my resources in school. Kids will love the horrid nature if this book.

Many Thanks to Orion Press the the ARC.
