Extraordinary Insects is a joy – The Times
A Sunday Times Nature Book of the Year 2019
Extraordinary Insects is a journey into the weird, wonderful and truly astonishing lives of the small but mighty creatures we canâ€™t live without.
Working quietly but tirelessly, insects give us food, uphold our ecosystems, can heal our wounds and even digest plastic. They could also provide us with new solutions to the antibiotics crisis, assist in disaster zones and inspire airforce engineers with their flying techniques. But their private lives are also full of fun, intrigue and wonder. Here, we discover life and death, drama and dreams, all on a millimetric scale. Like it or not, Earth is the planet of insects, and this is
their extraordinary story.
