About the Author

""READY-OR-NOT-HERE-I-COME." The boy listens. The girl is getting closer. Suddenly, there's another sound. A droning buzz. Something else is looking for the boy. The seeker is a mosquito, Culex pipiens, and her search is a matter of life and death. She must find food blood to nourish the hundreds of tiny eggs inside her body. Black-and-white photographs show the children's game of hide-and-seek, while astonishing micrographs show Culex and her world as seen through an electron microscope. Zoom in for a close-up view- A blade of grass looks like a menacing field of spines. A mosquito's eye becomes a bundle of tightly packed tubes. Discover the life story of a mosquito from a truly larger-than-life point of view."

Reviews

Gr 2-5-Readers view summer from a mosquito's perspective. Children playing outdoors represent a vital food source the female needs to nourish her eggs. Numerous images taken with a scanning electron microscope are colored to highlight details and trace the insect from egg to adult. (c) Copyright 2011.
