Bizarre Beasts (Deadly 60 Factbook)
Did you know that there is such a thing as a bone-eating snot-flower worm? Or that the secretary bird's kills its prey by stamping on it! Discover the world's most extraordinary creatures in the fifth factbook from BAFTA AWARD-winning, TV Deadly presenter Steve Backshall. Illustrated throughout with full colour photographs and art.
This is the fifth book in a fact filled series of books bought to us by the team behind BBC Earth's Deadly 60 programme. Each factbook concentrates on a specific group of animals - this one looks at Bizarre Beasts, beasts which look bizarre!
The book comprises of seven chapters entitled: Weaky weapons; Freaky foods; Curious camouflage; Deadly defenders; Remarkable hunters; Strange senses; and Bizarre bodies. Each is filled with a number of beasts from the animal world, giving fantastic facts which would add depth to any school project or just improving the knowledge of these creatures to children who love animals or who wants to know everything about the animal kingdom. It includes those facts which will gain those extra marks or could be tie breakers in quizes. There are great photographs throughout.
I received this book from the publishers, Orion Children's Books, in return for an honest review.
