Winner of the JP Redouté Children’s Book Prize
The world is full of insects. They far outweigh humans on earth, and we couldn’t survive long without them. But do you really know them? Vetted by entomologist Mathilde Gaudreau, the 30 portraits of Insectorama will give you an insect-eye view of some of the most wonderful you can find in parks and forests. On top of that, you’ll learn plenty of fun facts you can share with friends and family: crickets can hear thanks to ear drums located in their abdomen, unlike the Spring Field Cricket that hears through the knees. Don’t forget about the flies and butterflies who can taste with their legs. Did you know that many insects cross hemispheres when they migrate? Have you ever met the Hercules beetle, at up to seven inches, the largest beetle in the world?
Lisa’ Voisard’s award-winning illustrations will help anyone learn the secrets of these 30 insects: how to find them and how they need our help; how they navigate and how they reproduce. Become an insect expert as you come to love these marvelous little creatures!

I LOVE this collection! The clarity and ease of understanding is wonderful and appreciated. We are huge insect fans (I even have a tattoo!), so this educational book is perfect for us. It was well organized, informative, interesting and well illustrated. Highly recommend for anyone who loves insects, or wants to learn more 🐛
I love all things insects and this didn't disappoint. First, just the variety was impressive. From common to less known bugs, it gave good info. Then, it was simply but colorfully illustrated. I can't wait to see the finished product.
