Bugs and Spiders

David Orme (author)

Publisher: Perfection Learning ISBN: 9781613845691

Which bug has the most legs? Which bug is the fastest runner? Which spider is the most poisonous? And what's the deadliest bug of all? This is the world of bugs and spiders. Find out all about it. Get the facts. Then read 'What's Bugging You?', a story about alien explorers who get a big welcome from the local insect life. This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
