From the Back Cover

You asked for it!. More fun . . . More science . . . More variety . . . Where can you find a seven-inch caterpillar? Which plants do grasshoppers like to eat most? What beetles produce tiny explosions to protect themselves? Why are slugs so slimy? You'll find the answers to these and loads of other questions in this creepy, crawly, and wonderfully interactive follow-up to the perennial kids' favorite Pet Bugs. Small, intriguing to watch, and easy to take care of, bugs make terrific pets! More Pet Bugs introduces an all-new batch of these fascinating creatures, from ants, earwigs, and earthworms to tiger beetles, tobacco hornworms, and hickory horned devils. You'll learn what each bug looks like, where to find it, how to catch it, and how to care for it. Featuring safety tips and tons of information about why insects behave the way they do, More Pet Bugs promises hours of excitement through independent learning and hands-on investigation.

Format: Paperback
If you had read "Pet Bugs: A Kid's Guide to Catching and Keeping Touchable Insects", you would notice how interesting, informative and how organised each chapter is. For those of you who read the first book and was hoping there was another, here it is ! "More Pet Bugs : A Kid's Guide to Catching and Keeping Insects and Other Small Creatures" introduces even more strange and slimy creatures that you can keep !
The chapters in the book, like the first, are divided by the characteristics of the bug. For example in the " bugs that live in water" section, you will learn how to keep bugs that live in water.
Apart from teaching you how to keep the critters, the book also teaches you where to find and how to catch these slimy bugs. And if that isn't enough, there's also easy to understand facts about the bug's behaviour !
With over 20 new bugs, from ants to aquatic planarians to crayfish, this book will amuse and inform people of all ages.
Fans of these two books "Pet Bugs: A Kid's Guide to Catching and Keeping Touchable Insects" and "More Pet Bugs : A Kid's Guide to Catching and Keeping Insects and Other Small Creatures" can only hope that Sally Kneidel would write a third book to accompany these two.

Format: Paperback
I found this book very interesting and helpful. It told how to catch and keep insects and non-insects(like slugs and worms). It also told about the creature and it's behavior, as well as where it is found.

For anyone even a little interested in bugs as more than "yucky", this book is for them.
