Nature is dangerous!
50 Poisonous Questions: A Book With Bite
by Tanya Lloyd Kyi
illustrated by Ross Kinnaird
I borrowed this book from the library; its battered shape is testament to its popularity. Kids just love interesting trivia, especially if it involves fangs, stings, venom, and a high "ick" factor.
Besides dangerous animals and plants, there are chapters on toxic minerals, gas attacks, murderers and poisons, not to mention environmental hazards and disasters.
Funny cartoons and quips add levity to the proceedings. Definitely kid-approved!
