Africa is home to many insects but few are as pretty as the Zulu hud bug. These beautiful bugs are not easy to find but inside the pages of All About African Zulu Hud Bugs you'll learn all about them. Discover how these colorful creatures feed and live. Part of an ongoing series on Insects Around the World, this book is loaded with full-color photos of this striking insect.

Gr 3-5–Most of the insects in this series are rarely covered in children’s books. Titles feature straightforward descriptions of characteristics and behaviors, accompanied by large ­photographs spanning a page and a half. Unique qualities, like the Matabele ant’s termite predation and the popularity of mopane worms as food for humans, are highlighted. Though there is plenty of intriguing information, the presentations are not always smooth and complete. Readers learn how Madagascar hissing cockroaches hiss, for example, but nothing about how that aids their survival. Some text boxes pack in too many facts. Photographs capture the unusual aspects of each insect fairly well, though not all directly support the textual content. VERDICT Worth considering for comprehensive insect species coverage.--April 1, 2023, School Library Journal
