Enter the weird and wonderful world of creepy-crawlies. Our animal experts have unearthed 40 of the planet's most bizarre species and ranked them in order of their oddness! With jaw-dropping facts and amazing photos, we reveal each creature's seriously strange characteristics and the unusual ways they hunt, eat or defend themselves. They're sometimes hard to spot, but there are a mind-boggling 10 billion billion bugs on the planet. Inside World's Strangest Creepy-Crawlies , kids will discover the tiny terror that blows itself up to save its friends, a creature so well disguised even its own species can't see it, and a giant spider the size of a dinner plate. And with our `strange-o-meter', they can compare each animal based on its creepiness, fight factor and superpowers! Creepy-crawlies include:

  • Elephant beetle
  • Hickory horned devil
  • Happy-face spider
  • Zombie snail
  • Leafcutter ant
  • Froghopper
  • Spiny devil katydid
  • Goliath birdeater spider

What a fantastic book! I read with my son a different bug each night and now he says each night, 'Please can we have a bug?' 
My older daughters are also very amused by it - the pictures and fun facts are great as is the presentation.
Great book.

I loved this book and so did my two children aged 5 and 4!
My children loved looking at the p tyres while I told them facts about the creepy creatures! The pictures were captivating and my children loved the 'energy bars' on each page!

My six year old girl loved reading this book with me. The pictures are very bright and interesting without being too scary for young readers. She has been carrying this book around with her all the time and quoting interesting facts to anyone who will listen. A fascinating, fun, factual book for all the future entomologists out there.

My six year old son LOVED this. He's always been an inquisitive child, always asking questions about anything and everything, so fact books like this are perfect. He is very into nature too so a book about facts on creepy crawlies is right up his street. A lot of them, he hadn't heard of before and was so intrigued to find out more. I love that he was so into the book and learning at the same time. It's full of imagery and fun facts - perfect for little ones!

"It was funny and creepy. And I think it's like 12/12 or 1000/1000, it's so good. I think I liked the fact that it can tell you more about creepy crawlies. I really liked the bird dung crab spider because it disguises itself as bird poo!" William, age 6. 

This book is set out really well with scores on a strangeometer for creepiness and bug beauty etc. The facts are funny and memorable. What six year olds can resist bird poo spiders and exploding ants?

I was going to keep this for Christmas but couldn't resist giving it to him this half term. He loves it! I would really recommend it.

Great book for curious kids that love animals and specially creepy crawlies. The photos are amazing! My son loved looking at all the pages and learning interesting facts about each one of the creepy crawlies. Each page (or two) is dedicated to one of them and they give some interesting information and show a map of where around the world they can be found, which my son enjoyed as well, since he's finding out about places around the world. He also enjoyed the ratings given to each of the creepy crawlies to rate them in the top 40. Everyone in the family learned a lot about some special and quite different creepy crawlies.

I liked this book as it had lots of unusual creatures that I had not seen before. They looked strange but it was interesting to read about them and now I look for them when out and about.

It is good to know about lesser known creatures.

A very bright, enticing book, full of great beastly facts about creepy crawlies.... and believe me they are creepy!  All my kids, ages ranged from 2 to 8 loved seeing mummy squirm looking at some of these beasties, which, of course, created mass amusement!
