Flies are some of the world's most fascinating insects! This book's easy-to-read text and larger-than-life photos bring the fly's world to life, introducing readers to an fly's diet, habitat, enemies, and methods of defense. Diagrams help readers investigate the concept of metamorphosis and identify body parts, from the fly's compound eyes to its wings. The digestive, respiratory, circulatory, and nervous systems are also described. A step-by-step approach to scientific classification helps place flies within the order Diptera. Readers are also encouraged to consider the benefits and drawbacks of flies, as well as how they impact our daily lives. From houseflies to robber flies, young entomologists will enjoy uncovering the lives of these amazing creatures. Informative sidebars and Bug Bytes aim to peak readers' interest, while bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index enhance readability.
