This is the diary of P. Mantis, one of 150 brothers and sisters born on a garden bush. P. Mantis is an amazing insect: she can make herself look like a stick to hide from predators, she can swivel her head all the way around, and when she’s grown up, she’ll even be able to fly. Told in dated entries, P. Mantis describes the entirety of her life. Based on the children's book by Paul Meisel. Part of the "Read Out Loud" series.
