Research Notes
“I’ve written many books about insects, but this is one of my favorites. The scientists I interviewed were so enthusiastic about their work and its potential applications that it was easy to make the text lively and pack in tons of fascinating details."
“This is exactly the kind of book I need in my classroom. It bridges an important gap by including interesting, cutting-edge science in a book that can really help my students develop their reading skills."
