Overview

A basic introduction to mites, examining where they live, how they grow, what they eat, and the unique traits that help to define them, such as their ability to live on animals and in dust. Some of our world's most intriguing animals are among its creepiest. Creepy Creatures looks into the microscope, combs through fur, and investigates the outdoors to spotlight six more mini-beasts that scurry, fly, or jump. Each book matches clear text with up-close (and often startling) photos to give young readers an easy-to-follow introduction to the featured creature's body, growth process, behavior, food sources, and common habitats. Each title concludes with an activity that emphasizes the animal's defining physical characteristics.
