Nicola Davies and Steve Jenkins are my hands-down favourite authors of information books for kids. Nicola Davies wrote that great book about poo and my favourite shark book. Always beautifully and sometimes humorously illustrated, Nicola Davies has released a new book called Deadly: The truth about the most dangerous creatures on earth. If scary and gross are the two most requested genres(no? they should be) in my library, then deadly creatures would be third.
Nicely organized into two-page spreads, one text and the other illustrations, the book includes a handy index and glossary.
