Synopsis

Scorpion Vs Tarantula by Isabel Thomas

Don't Worry! No animals were harmed during the making of this series! Each title pits two exciting animals against each other, comparing their ability to hunt, defend themselves and survive against their predators in the wild. Each creature is awarded points in categories such as size and strength, camouflage and hunting skills in order to decide who would be champion if they ever did go head-to-head! The 'which is best?' format makes subjects such as habitats and food chains exciting and appealing to readers. It develops the reader's comparative and reasoning skills. It uses different text types to keep the reader interested. Each title contains an index, glossary and 'find out more' section to encourage further research.
