Histoires insolites


Patrice Leraut

Author
Edition 2015

Insects
Unusual Stories

The author relates unusual stories with tremendous humour, including the one about the little bug that blocked the construction of a motorway for two years or the one about "femmes fatales" or vamps (in fireflies!). Single-parent families also feature (case of parthenogenesis), as are  the urban hives. The eighth plague of Egypt may well remind us that, since Antiquity, men have had to combat certain insects that devoured their crops or infected them with dreadful diseases, but entomologists and nature lovers will understand here that consuming insects is a genuine hope for humanity.
