Mosquito Bite
by Alexandra Siy and Dennis Kunkel

Ouch! That itches!

Have you bopped a mosquito? Would you be surprised to learn that a mosquito has a scary proboscis rigged with cutters and knives that are stuck into your skin so she can drink your blood? Would you be grossed out to know that what makes you itch is nothing less than MOSQUITO SPIT? That's not all...Just wait until you read how she finds you and what she does with your blood!

And would you pass out if you found out that a mosquito is the most deadly animal in the world?

Okay, you're ready to read the WHOLE story! In Mosquito Bite, you'll not only get to read about those disgustingly dangerous insects, you'll get to SEE them up close...REALLY up close through electron microscopes!

Put on your mosquito repellent before you curl up in bed with this eye-popper!
