Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Fangs show big time in this well-researched book about snakes that live mostly in Australia. The opening page sets the stage with a few paragraphs pertaining to a death adder's strike on a hiker who could become history without a special lifesaving medicine. Follow-up in this book from the "Fangs" series comes in two-page-spreads that contain fabulous photos of death adders, fact boxes, and controlled text of eighty-five words or less. Readers will learn that these elapids come in colors ranging from red to green to yellow and that more than twenty baby adders may be born at one time. Of special interest is the fact that death adders have a tail that is like a rat's tail. The adder adeptly wiggles the tail and tricks its prey into thinking it is a worm or caterpillar. Once it has lured the prey close enough, it grabs it before it can escape. Spread titles such as "An Invisible Cloak," "Mysterious Moves," "The Jaws of Death," and "Humans Beware" work well to capture the reader's attention. This book can be used to supplement science and animal lessons in school curriculum. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
