Product Description


This book is entertaining and informative and could be used as supplementary classroom material on a variety of biology, environmental or history related topics. (Kim Frail The Deakin Review of Children's Literature 2011-07-00)

Overall, a very excellent book for teens that should increase their knowledge by maintaining their interest. (Zachary G. Chauvin Resource Links 2011-06-00)

As previously demonstrated by last year's fun-filled 50 Burning Questions: A Sizzling History of Fire, Tanya Lloyd Kyi has no trouble balancing the sinister and the safe. (Quill and Quire 2011-02-00)

The sense of humour, compelling information, short readable pieces and catchy headings make this a pleasure for reading. (Aileen Wortley Canadian Children's Book News 2011-08-00)

Sickly green pages (which may be intended to reflect the nausea these substances cause) and red headlines might be just the thing to entice readers seeking intriguing facts. (Janet S. Thompson School Library Journal 2011-09-01)

Humor + Facts + pinch of eeewww! = great for tweens March 8 2011
By Maggie Knapp - Published on
Format: Paperback
This bright and energetic paperback book calls out to middle school readers who like their science with lots of pictures, frequent jokes and a healthy dose of "ick" factor worked in. Designed for browsing rather than research, it presents facts about snakes, berries, mushrooms, gases, minerals and all manner of other lethal substances using illustrations, quizzes, cartoons, and enough text surrounding it all to satisfy budding scientists as well as those looking for fun.
