Eric Beddows′s vibrant drawings send each insect soaring, spinning, or creeping off the page in its own unique way.

(Hint: Many of them did not really care about whether slavery remained legal.) It's also a quick read, and I'll forgive a lot for a book that doesn't take forever to get through.… (lisätietoja)
