KIRKUS REVIEW

 The San Francisco Insect Zoo is home to thousands of insects and related arthropods (including arachnids, crustaceans, millipedes, and centipedes), displayed here in appealing color photos showing complete and incomplete metamorphosis--mating, hatching, forming of pupas, and emerging as adults. The accompanying text describes feeding, housing, collecting, and displaying insects; unfortunately, it is written in a dry, difficult style with neither diagrams nor glossary to help with specialized terms--though it introduces a unique treat: visiting the Zoo on its annual ``What's Bugging You? Day,'' and sampling an edible insect buffet. Interesting topic; less-than- satisfying presentation. Index. (Nonfiction. 10-12)
