Summary

"The author of Flies in the Face of Fashion, Mites Make Right, and Other Bugdacious Tales is back with more ditties on the insect kingdom. Insects may not rule the world, but what other species has been able to run with the dinosaurs, witness the emergence of the first human beings, and still be around to talk about it? These six-legged species have roamed the Earth for 400 million years and are still going strong as the most common type of living organism. Discover the beehive of activity insects encounter daily with Tom Turpin's new book What's Buggin' You Now? Bee's Knees, Bug Lites, and Beetles."--BOOK JACKET.

Author Biography

Dr. Tom Turpin is the creator of Purdue University's "Bug Bowl," a celebration of insect antics, annually drawing over 12,000 visitors, who come to munch on bug stir-fry, to take part in cricket-spitting contests, and to cheer on tractor-pulling creepy crawlers at Roach Hill Downs. Turpin has been featured in Time and People magazines and has appeared on Good Morning America, the Guinness World Record Show and the Prairie Home Companion. He is a professor of entomology in Purdue's college of agriculture.
