Summary
From insects that chomp on chocolate and strawberries to grain weevils and fruit flies, the food we eat is not ours alone. Virtually everything we consume is a target for thousands of creatures, some of them harmful to our health and some helpful. Filled with fascinating facts, Disgusting Food Invaders welcomes young readers to feast their eyes on a host of tiny, uninvited dinner guests. Combines vivid, full-color microscope images and a controlled text that contains a wealth of information
