Horrid Henry's Bugs by Francesca Simon
Packed with freaky facts and random trivia, this is the perfect guide to everything you ever wanted to know (and lots of things you might never have wanted to know) about BUGS - Horrid Henry style!
How do bees keep warm?
Which bug eats its prey alive?
Are ladybirds really poisonous?
Weird and wonderful, hilarious and horrid, welcome to Horrid Henry's guide to everything you ever wanted to know about ..........Bugs.
I have seen a number of these Horrid Fact-books and they are fantastic books for children. They contain lots of facts within the book, the kind of facts which could come up in quizzes The facts are separated by the clever illustrations of Tony Ross in typical Horrid Henry style.
This book would make a great gift to lovers of everything creepy crawly and will keep them amused for hours. There are facts included which I can imagine will be the talk of the playground the next day. Many of the facts could make the starting point for further learning about the creepy crawly world.
Thank you to the publishers, Orion Children's Books, for sending me the book to review.
