This is a paper engineering feat of striking impact. The bugs' creepy crawlers' colors are gorgeous; each individual one pops out BIG and SCARY. Each is terrifying fun, but each is clearly not real, not really a fright - the red tarantula, the blue-green almost black scorpion, the enormous MEAN wasp and the vicious pink praying mantis. All, like the experience of looking at this book, are memorable.
