"Everything makes nests. Birds for their eggs. Squirrels make dreys to sleep in through the winter, bears make dens, rabbits burrows. Our houses are just big nests, really. A place where you can sleep and be safe - and grow." Nests are usually comforting places, places to raise a family, places to feel protected. But when nests contain special wasps that want to take your baby, a nest can be a very scary place indeed. The Nest is to wasps what Jaws was (and still is!) to sharks. A fast-paced thriller that will have you swatting at imaginary wasps until the very last page. Read it with the lights on!
