A fantastic non-fiction book about how “bugs” affect the ecosystem. From millions of years ago pollinators to today (with their declining populations) we see how important these sometimes less-than-graceful beings can be. Kurlansky shows how man and creature interacts with each other (sometimes positively, sometimes detrimentally). Packed full of amazing and funny information. Black and white illustrations enhance everything. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
