A Buzz in the Meadows discusses the life of insects and the authors personal studies and contacts with various wonderful mini-beasts.

The book had an eco, environmental, factual element but was rarely preachy or finger-pointy. It was made all the more enjoyable by the author’s casual style of writing, like he was having a good chat about a subject he was very enthused by. Illustrations would have added to the enjoyment and understanding of these small and intriguing critters.

Overall a very informative and enjoyable to read.
