Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Justina Engebretson
For some, spiders are the creepiest critters on the planet; however, spiders may quickly loose first place on the most feared creatures list when one discovers the ninety-nine other specimens also on that list. For example, there is the kissing bug that likes to bite people on the face when they are sound asleep. Then there is the deceptively beautiful Australian box jelly that some like to call the sea wasp. With just one touch, this beauty can bring on a heart attack. If those are not scary enough, there is always the great white shark or the black mamba. With this middle reader, elementary-age students should prepare to be shocked and amazed as they learn about the top 100 creatures most feared by humankind. For each creature, readers will get all the creepy scary facts, such as how big they are, what their deadly weapon is, and what skills they possess. Photographs of these creatures in action accompany their bios, giving readers a picture to match each animal's fearful descriptions. To top it all off, the book ends by compiling these 100 animals into a list from least fearful to most fearful. This book is sure to appeal to elementary and preteen boys or anyone who wants to learn which animals they should probably avoid. Reviewer: Justina Engebretson
Kirkus Reviews
2013-09-01
Fertile fodder for fans of faux fearful freakouts. The latest in a largely interchangeable series with nearly identical titles (100 Deadliest Things on the Planet, 2012; 100 Most Awesome Things on the Planet, 2011; etc.), this gallery of creepy creatures offers unapologetically sensationalized content. Small portrait photos, five per spread, are matched to names, size ranges, two pithy descriptive notes and "scariness ratings" on a scale of one to five shark teeth. Along with, no surprise, 10 types of shark, the entries include a variety of biting insects and parasitic worms, poison frogs, snakes, carnivorous mammals on land and in the sea, deadly birds (a cassowary "[k]icks hard enough to tear an animal open or rip through a car door"), poisonous jellyfish and killer spiders. No need to fear, writes the author, "most" of these animals will leave you alone if not bothered, and "most" of their bites or stings have medical treatments. Browsers seeking self-inflicted terror or disgust will find in the small but rousing pictures a wide range of open maws and jagged teeth--but (with rare exceptions like the guinea worm being pulled from a sore) nothing seriously gruesome or disturbing. Choruses of delighted "Eeewww"s guaranteed, as well as exposure to such important scientific terms as "mustelid" and "parasite." ("Top 100" countdown, index) (Nonfiction. 8-10)
