Publisher's Synopsis

'George McGavin is a rarity.' Sir David Attenborough

Insects conquered Earth long before we did and will remain long after we're gone. Outnumbering us in the billions, they are essential to life as we know it, helping to maintain many of the natural processes that we take for granted.

Taking a deep dive into the unknown truths of the most successful and enduring animal group the world has ever seen, entomologist and broadcaster George McGavin explores not only the incredible traits that insects have evolved, such as dragonflies that can fly across oceans without rest and beetles that lay their eggs exclusively in corpses, but also the vital lessons that we have learnt from them and how they continue to help us grow as a society.

The Hidden World reveals the unseen effects this weird and wonderful population has on our planet, if only we care to look.

'Crawling with detail, glowing with extraordinary facts and rich with humour and personality.' Professor Alice Roberts
