From the smallest frogs to the biggest and most fearsome crocodiles, get face to face with some of the world's most unusual creatures in this colourful, fact-packed look at the world of reptiles and amphibians.
Take a journey of discovery into the amazing world of reptiles and amphibians. With fantastic facts and incredible photographs, this book gives you a close-up look at some of the world's most fascinating and unusual creatures.
A very basic book, aimed really at the younger kids. From skinks to crocs, frogs to snakes, this book covers them all. Big bold lettering, with difficult or important words highlighted with big blocks of bright colours makes this easily readable by young kids, with a bit of help from mum or dad.
There isn't a lot of information, with 1 small paragraph per page/critter. This book is mainly pictures, big pictures. The info that is there is quite good though.
All in all, a pretty good book for the wee ones, but a bit too basic for school-age kids. An excellent highlight though is the small datablock on each page, showing the average size of the critter, a picture showing it in scale to an average human, and a 5-skull danger rating. Pretty good, and not a bad price considering it's a large, hardcover book.
Random listing from 'Books'...
When sun flares hit the Earth, intense heat, toxic radiation and flooding followed, wiping out much of the human race. Those who survived live in basic communities in the mountains, hunting for food.
For Mark and his friends, surviving is difficult, and then an enemy arrives, infecting people with a highly contagious virus. Thousands die, and the virus is spreading. Worse, it's mutating, and people are going crazy.
It's up to Mark and his friends to find the enemy and a cure before the Flare infects them all.
