KIRKUS REVIEW

In a comfortably informative catalog of 28 common insects, May devotes about three pages each to the horse fly, carpenter ant, water strider and others, touching on their anatomy, life cycles, habits, and significance for man. Crosby provides a full page black-and-white illustration of each adult insect and for some, smaller pictures of their eggs and young. The writing is brisk, the brief introduction to the point, and the layout generous and attractive. This will be of special interest to Canadians since May includes their country (and his) in his comments about each insect's distribution.
