This is an interesting guide to insects found on the front end of vehicles. The author travelled the roads, wayside rests, and bus terminals of the North American looking for patterns that occur when an insect meets a vehicle on the road. The twenty-four insects are alphabetical by common insect name. Each section has the scientific name and description, natural life history, fund things to do with the insect, the most common insect type to be hit by vehicles, and fascinating facts. There is a section in the middle with photographs of the insects and the splat along with a description of the splat. There are chapters on collection and mounting insects, games to play in the car, references, a glossary, and index. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 089815961X, Paperback)

That Gunk on Your Car is a seriously funny book filled with fascinating information about common insects, especially the ones you are most likely to find splattered on your windshield. Chapters are organized around the individual insects--ants, mosquitoes, grasshoppers, butterflies, crickets, midges--and include information on the natural history and life cycles of each and fun things you can do with the insects. That Gunk on Your Car would be an excellent parent/child participatory book: the lively text is easy to read and scientifically accurate.
