Rhyming text introduces a variety of bug-eaters, or "insectivores".  Meet such insectivores as a bat, a bear, a nuthatch, a gecko, a plant, and, surprise! - a person like you!  Each double-page spread shows a detailed watercolor illustration of the bug-eater with a simple verse description.  Additional information about each creature is provided in a section at the back of the book.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
