Creepiest moth book title ever?

I was just looking at Amazon for the latest lep books when I found this one. Weird. No clue what the book is actually about.

RE: Creepiest moth book title ever?

Not a moth book of course, but a slim book of poetry by a Chinese author.

The poem also contains the line
"when every butterfly will be a lopsided carpenter’s square".

The poem reminds me of the random words in spamming text; perhaps something is lost in translation to English.

Was this actually classified as a science book, or were you searching Amazon for the word "moth"?

RE: Creepiest moth book title ever?

I did searches for "lepidoptera" and "moths." I sorted by publication date. I don't really pay attention to classification/category.

This book came up during the "moths" search.

I was surprised that my search brought up this book:
Zombie Makers: True Stories of Nature's Undead

Says it is geared towards grades 4-8 so I bought a copy to donate to my kids' middle school. If the word "zombie" on the cover gets kids to read a book on bugs, I'll buy it. I worked zombie bugs into my caterpillar talks this year at the middle and high school levels.

Glanced at some reviews of the Zombie book, looks like it is scaring the adults more than the kids.
I posted this a couple of years ago, but it is appropriate again here. Some time back the daily newspaper was truncating the TV listings for the show "How I Met Your Mother" to:

How I Met Your Moth
