Heads And Tails: Insects

John Canty

Heads and Tails: Insects is a playful follow up book to the popular Heads and Tails (Winner of the Speech Pathology birth – 3 year old category and CBCA Notable 2018).

At first we can only see the insects tails. Some clues help us try to identify each insect as we learn more about each one. Now, can you guess the insect that each tail belongs to before they are revealed once the page is turned?

Educational, playful and beautiful to behold, Heads and Tails: Insects by John Canty is a perfect introduction to the amazing world of bugs.

- The Age

This smartly designed picture book holds up a magnifying glass to the amazing insect world in our midst and makes a merry game of discovering who's who and what's what there.

- Leonard S. Marcus

"Canty's has successfully given this timeless and popular topic an engaging and fresh feel. Head and Tail Insects will delight and engage a new generation of budding entomologists."
