Beetles squeak and beetles glow.
Beetles stink, beetles sprint, beetles walk on water.

With Legs, antennae, horns, beautiful shells, knobs, and other oddities--what's not to like about beetles?

The beetle world is vast: one out of every four living thing on earth is a beetle. There are over 350,000 different species named so far and scientists suspect there may be as many as a million.

From the goliath beetle that weighs one fourth of a pound to the nine inch long titan beetle, award-winning author-illustrator Steve Jenkins presents a fascinating array of these intriguing insects and the many amazing adaptations they have made to survive.
