Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Hilarious illustrated non-fiction about cockroaches perfect for beginning readers. You'll bug out over this perfect pairing of humorous text and funny illustrations about this insect that's been around for over 335 million years! <br> <br> Fast cockroach facts:<br> * Distinctive trait: Flat and oval-shaped body<br> * Diet: Everything! (Especially if it's greasy and sweet . . .)<br> * Special talent: Running<br> <br> The Cockroach covers lifestyle (cockroaches prefer the dark and only come out during the day when their colonies get big enough), anatomy (cockroaches have wings but rarely fly), habitat (they prefer heat to cold), life cycle (a female can give birth to up to 350 babies during her lifetime) and much more. Although silly and off-the-wall, The Cockroach contains factual information that will both amuse and teach at the same time.
