*The Sunday Times Bestseller* 'Extraordinary Insects is a joy' The Times A Sunday Times Nature Book of the Year 2019 A journey into the weird, wonderful and truly astonishing lives of the small but mighty creatures we can't live without. Insects influence our ecosystem like a ripple effect on water.

They arrived when life first moved to dry land, they preceded - and survived - the dinosaurs, they outnumber the grains of sand on all the world's beaches, and they will be here long after us. Working quietly but tirelessly, they give us food, uphold our ecosystems, can heal our wounds and even digest plastic.

They could also provide us with new solutions to the antibiotics crisis, assist in disaster zones and inspire airforce engineers with their flying techniques. But their private lives are also full of fun, intrigue and wonder.

Here, we will discover life and death, drama and dreams, all on a millimetric scale.

Like it or not, Earth is the planet of insects, and this is their extraordinary story.
