The Icky Bug Alphabet Book

written by Jerry Pallotta, illustrated by Ralph Masiello

Lighthearted text and vivid illustrations make this alphabetical exploration of small animal life both fun and informative.

The author uses many unknown spiders, bugs and butterflies to fulfill his goal of illustrating the alphabet. The brilliant, true to life paintings and numerous insect facts make the book worthwhile in itself. An interesting angle on the world of insects.

For Example

G is for Grasshopper.
P is for Praying Mantis.
X is for the marking on the back of this bug. We could not find a bug whose name began with the letter X. This bug is called a Cotton Stainer.
