Synopsis

New Zealand's insects include some of the world's most remarkable, including the giant weta (one of the world's heaviest insects, dating from dinosaur days) and the world's longest weevil. The most iconic, important and most prominent species and families feature in "Know Your New Zealand Insects and Spiders". Added to the natives are key introduced species, such as the monarch butterfly, and the book also features a selection of noteworthy spiders. This title joins New Holland's hugely successful "Know Your..." series, of which the first two titles - "Birds" and "Trees" - have both reprinted twice less than two years after their release. Written for a family readership and with the novice in mind, the text of "Know Your..." titles is light and easy in tone, with simple language, and is accompanied by full-page, full-color portrait photographs. This book is ideal for anyone interested in identifying the insects and spiders in their neighborhood or in the wild.
