Quotes & Awards

  • “Sue Hubbell, a beekeeper-turned-essayist, shares [her]…fondness, and after reading her notes on camel crickets, gypsy moths, and water striders, among other creatures, you will as well. Hubbell’s appreciation extends even to bugs that we find noxious, although she admits to harboring a few favorites among the innumerable insect orders, notably bees, of course, and daddy longlegs spiders, whose ‘otherness’ she rightly prizes.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “At last, a readable book about insects! Beekeeper Hubbell discourses on familiar, if not widely loved, creatures.”

    " I thought at first I might not make it through this one, never having been a big bug fan, but being a Sue Hubbell fan, I stuck with it. It was well worth it. I may never be the enthusiast Hubbell is, but my eyes are more open and appreciative. "
