About the book
Sold toFinland: Minerva
We scratch, wave and swear at the insects and we fight an endless battle against unwanted weed and bugs in our backyards. But there is an entire world to discover beyond the tabloid headlines about tick invasions and killer wasps.
Meet some of the most familiar and unfamiliar animals and plants that interfere with our summer bliss. With a tongue-in-cheek approach, an enormous knowledge and a large respect for nature and its creatures, Lars-Åke Janzon describes how the different species live and flourish. How we keep snakes away from our gardens and why the tick is our most dangerous animal, but also how we protect ourselves in the best possible way, and when it’s time to head to the emergency room.
This is the perfect summer gift and an indispensable book for the cottage.
Matsåke Bergström’s beautiful illustrations help us separate the harmful from the harmless.
