Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
What reptile can shoot blood from its eyes for a distance of four feet in order to ward off its enemies? It is the bloody horned lizard. This lizard has even more tricks to protect itself from predators. The colorful, close-up photographs of the lizard with the captions provide additional information about this unusual creature and its life. An extra part of the contents is the brief information about another animal that shoots slime. With guidance on reading and using content information, young readers may also learn more about using the features of informational text. The simple glossary contains a few words along with a pronunciation guide, description and photograph. There is an index, list of additional book titles, and online resources for those readers seeking additional information about the bloody horned lizard. Also, this book is one in a collection of six from the "Gross-Out Defenses" series. So readers who love the "yuck factor" may enjoy reading about other animals with equally gross defense mechanisms.
