August 2016 Book of the Month This book is definitely not for those of a nervous disposition! It features hundreds of different creatures from big cats and bears to the tiniest creatures. They all have one thing in common: they are deadly, and will sting, bite, poison or trample you should you get too close. Each bright, information-packed page features five different animals graded, Top Trumps like, according to degrees of scariness, a ‘Killer Fact’ distinguishing the most scary. It’s very readable, perfect for browsing, non-fiction at its jaw-dropping best. A word of warning – the photo of the Guinea worm on page 96 will put even those with the strongest stomachs off their tea! ~ Andrea Reece

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
