Bugs: Explorer by Nick Forshaw and William Exley (What on Earth Publishing) @whatonearthbook

A fantastic new book from "What on Earth Publishing" should answer just about every question you have about creepy crawlies!
"Explorer: Bugs!" by Nick Forshaw and William Exley is a fantastic history of insects and their huge success story.

They've been around for a very long time (far longer than us). The very first bugs may have feasted on our Dinosaur ancestors (though we're still not sure if you could somehow genetically engineer live dinosaurs from ancient mosquitos trapped in amber).

This is a really awesomely produced timeline of insects that crawl, that fly, that slither and slink.

The six-foot-long timeline features over 100 bugs from their first appearance about 230 million years-ago through to their living descendants, and how they survived and thrived.

Join an intrepid explorer on his quest to find out as much as possible about these amazing creatures in his fascinating journal. 

Find out why they were so successful, who discovered the first one, how they support our environment, and more!

It's utterly brilliant stuff, great for home or class. 

"Explorer: Bugs" by Nick Forshaw and William Exley is out today, published by What on Earth Publishing (kindly supplied for review).
