Did you ever look a spider in the eye? Or check out the trunk of a mosquito? Or discovered the amazing structure of a butterfly wing, or seen the powerful jaws of a ladybug? Get a look at insects, closer than ever before, through pictures that will take your breath away.
Scientist Jannicke Wiik-Nielsen uses a microscope to take these highly original pictures. She has won awards for her pictures, and they have been part of international exhibitions. She has written the informative texts in cooperation with renowned writers Ole Mathismoen and Dag O. Hessen, authors of a number of books for both children and adults about nature and science. The texts are written for children, but this is just as much a coffee table book that the entire family will enjoy. As well as the fascinating pictures, there are drawings of the insects they way we are used to see them.
This is a book full of facts about insects and bugs, taking the curiosity of children seriously.
