I’m 8-inches long; I have six legs and compound eyes. What am I? Find out in Hugh Raffles’ new book, <i>Insect-opedia</i>. Packed to the brim with knowledge ranging from the practical—when is it okay to swat?—to fun trivia—why does the fainting beetle faint?—to information regarding the importance of insects to the biodiversity of their habitat, if it’s insect-related, it’s probably in <i>Insect-opedia</i>. What will Hugh bring to the air with his bug-focused brain? Hopefully not flies. And if the riddle above is <b>bugging</b> you, you probably already know where to go for your <b>ants</b>wers.
