Just how long is the world’s longest insect? A walking stick called Chan’s megastick is nearly as long as three new pencils placed end to end. Not only that, but these supersized insects are also masters of disguise. They look so much like sticks that some animals can’t even tell when one is standing right next to them! These are just some of the surprising facts children will discover as they explore the fascinating world of these extra-long insects. In Walking Sticks: The World’s Longest Insects, eye-popping color photos paired with simple, grade-appropriate text will engage children as they learn about the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, life cycle, and behavior of this supersized animal. A comparison diagram is also included to show readers the animal in relation to a familiar object.

Walking Sticks

This offering from the Even More SuperSized! series introduces readers to the world’s longest insect: Chan’s megastick, a walking stick native to the rain forests of northern Borneo that can grow to a length of 22 inches. Using double-page-spread chapters, Gray provides a wide range of basic information about this species. He details size, habitat, eating practices, predators, defense mechanisms, and life cycle. Each spread contains a brief section of text; crisp, captioned, full-color photographs; and an occasional map or related graphic. The back matter includes examples of other long insects. The photographs are particularly well chosen; captioned arrows call attention to structures that might otherwise be difficult to see—important for an animal whose specialty is camouflage. This makes a good choice for beginning researchers as well as curious browsers.
