Reviews

"Amy Stewart's young readers edition of her New York Times bestseller is at once fascinating, entertaining, informative and horrifying."
--The Buffalo News

"Horrifyingly informative."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Sure to thrill budding entomologists . . . This accessible, middle-grade version of Wicked Bugs combines science, anthropology and history with a powerful yuck-factor. It's sure to be a hit with even the most reluctant readers--just be prepared for some serious goose bumps and skin tingles along the way."
--Shelf Awareness

"Budding entomologists and kids who marvel in the truly awe-inspiring, sometimes hair-raising, and gross natural world will be in heaven."
--School Library Journal

"Reluctant readers will be drawn in. The writing is lively and fun . . . A bug-lover's delight."
--San Francisco Book Review

"The organization is tidy and intuitive, the scope is impressive, the entry length is ideal, and the content is itchingly disturbing."
