Walking Sticks

The World's Longest Insects

From the Series Even More SuperSized!

Just how long is the world’s longest insect? A walking stick called Chan’s megastick is nearly as long as three new pencils placed end to end. Not only that, but these supersized insects are also masters of disguise. They look so much like sticks that some animals can’t even tell when one is standing right next to them! These are just some of the surprising facts children will discover as they explore the fascinating world of these extra-long insects. In Walking Sticks: The World’s Longest Insects, eye-popping color photos paired with simple, grade-appropriate text will engage children as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this supersized animal. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.
