An educational book about a famous (or infamous) insect. As children play hide-and-seek on a hot summer night, a mosquito hides and seeks as well. She must find food (blood in this case) to nourish the eggs in her body. Amazing photos relate the children’s hide-and-seek story line, while stunning photomicrographs offer close-up views of the microscopic world of mosquito mayhem. Guaranteed to capture the fascination of children ages 6 to 11, most of whom will have already encountered this insect up close.
