Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sue Hubbell, a beekeeper-turned-essayist, shares [her]…fondness, and after reading her notes on camel crickets, gypsy moths, and water striders, among other creatures, you will as well. Hubbell’s appreciation extends even to bugs that we find noxious, although she admits to harboring a few favorites among the innumerable insect orders, notably bees, of course, and daddy longlegs spiders, whose ‘otherness’ she rightly prizes.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“At last, a readable book about insects! Beekeeper Hubbell discourses on familiar, if not widely loved, creatures.” Publishers Weekly
