Dr. K. Fisher is a bird that knows all about insects and helps them learn more about their unique bodies in the book Ask Dr. K. Fisher about Creepy-Crawlies. He explains that insects’ bodies work the way they do to serve individual purposes, and that makes each of them interesting and special. This book is set up in a question and answer format; there are letters written from different insects asking specific questions about themselves, accompanied with the response from Dr. K. Fisher. Between the letters, there are also fact pages about body types, wings, colonies, and camouflaging. The book includes fun, labeled illustrations which correlate perfectly with the text. This is an entertaining guide for children to learn more about insects in an original way.
