This elegantly illustrated book explains stage by stage in easy text how a wasp nest is built. It follows by days and weeks and shows how the queen's industrious workers create a sturdy, weatherproof home. Readers see the inside of the growing nest where the eggs turn into larvae and emerge 20 days later as juveniles. As the nest gets bigger and the story progresses, the book's pages become bigger too. Cross sections show the amazing construction of the nest and how the wasps live and work.

As someone both fascinated and terrified by wasps and their nests, I found this to be a very approachable non-fiction book explaining their biology. This is an excellent book for exploring the life cycles and habitats of insects.
