Publisher's Summary

After 25 years on a farm in the Ozarks, award-winning writer and naturalist Sue Hubbell moved to a small town on the coast of Maine. There, in the pools, tides, and thickets, she found a vast array of creatures that aroused her considerable curiosity. Join Hubbell on a unique tour of the world of invertebrates. From humpbacked camel crickets to glow worms, from horseshoe crabs to elegantly-furred sea mice, Hubbell offers vivid descriptions and fascinating details about these superb examples of survival. She also introduces some experts in the field—scientists who share their enthusiasm and knowledge. Waiting for Aphrodite grew from hours of field observation and reflects the days Hubbell spent at the Library of Congress augmenting her information. Entertaining for layman and scientist alike, it is both warmly personal and carefully researched.

    "Love of smaller majority"

    Hubbel tells about invertebrates inspiringly One can really feel her enthusiasm and love of knowledge between lines. She can tell about these fascinating creatures very clearly and yet offers lots of information ; even I - biologist interested in invertebrates - found many morsels of information new to me.

    "Personal Invertebrate Zoology"

    This is a very easy to read and an enjoyable light wondering over the life and loves of a bunch of invertebrates. This book opens jars and cans of slugs and bugs to answer simple questions about the invertebrates we know, if not love. This was a pleasurable and edifying romp through a subject I don’t very well. The book is not very technical and just looks into questions that come up while looking at invertebrates. I will certainly listen to the other books by Sue Hubble available on audible.
