Minibeast Magic

Roma Oxford, illustrations by Anna Sutton, 2015, 61pp

In Minibeast Magic, you'll be meeting invertebrates often found in gardens, nature parks and school grounds. They include worms, snails, woodlice, centipedes, millipedes, spiders and an astonishing variety of insects. To get to grips with studying these small creatures, you need a little help, so this guide book explains minibeast-friendly simple trapping methods. You'll learn how to make pooters, pitfalls and special punch for moths. You can find out how to create mini-habitats, how to keep some creatures in comfortable captivity and most of all, how completely absorbing the lives of invertebrates are.

Aimed at 7-13 year olds.
