Imaginative stories of fourteen insects, their complex life cycles, and their environs, told in a way that captures children's interest. The insects described range from the familiar butterfly, moth, grasshopper, cricket, bumble bee, firefly, dragonfly, and beetle to the less well known tree hopper, walking stick and gall dweller. Notes include lots of suggestions for further reading. The author, a widely-respected entomologist, made it one of her life goals to produce engaging stories for children that were scientifically accurate in all respects.
