KIRKUS REVIEW

If you've ever been bugged by not only the tenacious and gregarious cockroach, but also by spiders, fleas, termites, lice, ants as well as larger assailants--bats, rats, pigeons, you'll be wholly interested in this fascinating material. Did you know that: a prince kept a tame bat (they can only fly for ten minutes--are very catchable) which ate chocolates perched on his wife's shoulder every night; that flies are much filthier than roaches; that termites do more damage than lightning, tornadoes and arson ""and frugging teen-agers combined""; that while spiders are over-feared, wasps are underestimated? etc. etc. Everybody should like Nobody Loves: it's an attractant of the highest order.
