Editorial Review from Product Description
Author Cathryn Sill explains in easy-to-understand language what arachnids are, how they live, what they eat, and how they reproduce. Wildlife painter John Sills' detailed realistic illustrations reflect the diversity of the arachnid population--from the poisonous Brown Recluse Spider to the innocuous Giant Desert Hairy Scorpion--and present each in its natural habitat.
An appendix, which provides further detail on the arachnids portrayed, will inspire young readers to learn more about these fascinating, often misunderstood creatures.
