1981. Jane Dallinger. Grasshoppers have always been famous for their large appetites. They eat plants, and sometimes a group of these insects will eat a farmer's entire crop. They are also known for their jumping ability. Their long, powerful legs help them move quickly over the ground in great hops. Some types of grasshoppers live peacefully with other animals and with plant life, yet others are very destructive, travelling in large groups that can destroy every plant throughout miles and miles of countryside. They have even been known to rip into shreds any laundry left hanging out to dry. In this book, students will learn more about how grasshoppers live and why some of them cause so much damage. 48 pages, soft cover, full-color photographs. Grades 4-6.
