Bug-a-licious (Extreme Cuisine) by Meish Goldish

WARNING: DO NOT READ BEFORE YOU EAT
OR IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH!

That is the warning that should be included in the front of Bug-a-licious, a great book for those who love gross things. Meish Goldish presents fascinating information about how insects are eaten in various parts of the world. The text is simple and reader friendly while the photos are large and colorful. In particular I enjoyed seeing the before and after photos of the insects. Check out this book to learn about bug pizza, grasshopper tacos, and wasp crackers
(picture to the left) just to name a few. Our own country even contributes to the grossness with cricket lollipops (below)!










Now I just have to hope that our library gets the rest of the disgustingly fascinating Extreme Cuisine series!

I loved these books. I read them all and think they are absolutely disgusting and fascinating. I look forward to even more books in this series.
