|Keeping Stick Insects book by Dorothy Floyd
Written in a clear, easy to read style, this
best-selling book is a really helpful guide on how to look after stick insects
You can also learn about how stick
insects live; for example how they breathe, grow and reproduce. The information
is presented in a clear way and so is easy to understand. The author, Dorothy
Floyd, studied at Cambridge University and uses her scientific knowledge gained
from that time, together with her extensive personal experience, to produce a
book that is packed with valuable tips, fascinating observations, and accurate
biological information. This book has colour photographs, including close-ups
of eggs of popular stick insect species, and detailed illustrations. Seven
species of stick insects are discussed in detail and there is a school topic
ideas section at the end.
Keeping Stick Insects has 64 pages and
contents and index pages. It has a spine and laminated cover and is printed in
the UK. The ISBN is 0 9512466 0 7. This book is still in print and has already
been reprinted several times.
