A centipede as long as a couch? Trees so tall they touch the clouds? Amphibians changing into reptiles? These are just a few of the amazing life forms detailed in When Bugs Were Big.... This lively new paperback tickles the reader's funny bone while imparting tons of information about the animals, plants, and bugs that lived before the dinosaurs.
