In the animal life of the world, insects are by far the largest class. There are many thousands of different kinds, all playing a part in nature - some doing useful work fertilizing plants, preying on pests or clearing-up decayed matter, while others can only be regarded as pests.
This book describes and illustrates a number of the most common, most colourful or most interesting insects, and you will find them a fascinating study.
