Cockroaches are creepy, crawly, and also very old. These ancient arthropods have been lurking in dark corners for thousands of centuries, and theyve changed very little in all that time. Readers will see past the cockroachs disgusting reputation and see how its amazing adaptations have allowed it to survive on a changing planet. Fact boxes provide interesting supplemental information, while eye-popping images show just how neat (and gross) these creatures can be. Readers can use the glossary and index to guide their reading, and also explore websites for more opportunities to learn.
