This beautifully illustrated title explores the wonderful world of slimy, mucky minibeasts

Everybody loves beautiful bees and butterflies, but what about kids who like more mucky creatures - the ones that live down in the dirt or eat their own poo? These minibeasts are just as deserving of attention. This beautifully illustrated title will explore the wonderful world of spiders.

So what's so interesting about these particular minibeasts? Apparently, most people are never more than 3ft away from a spider (apart from in this building perhaps??). Spider blood is light blue and they have four sets of eyes.
The strongest material in the world, according to scientists, is the silk that spiders spin. Scientists haven't been able to recreate this design even with all the technology we have today. Giant trapdoor spiders are considered living fossils because they are similar to spiders that lived over 300 million years ago.



Accessible, fact-filled text combined with cute, beautiful artwork results in a stunning non-fiction picture book.

Ideal for allowing children to learn more about minibeasts, but also for introducing them to habitats and understanding other living creatures
