Synopsis

The Deadliest Creature in the World by Brenda Z. Guiberson

Which creature is the deadliest? Is it the insect that bites, the ostrich that kicks, the snake that squeezes, or the shrew that paralyses? Or is it the most venomous, the most poisonous, or the one that infects its victims with a fatal disease? Fascinating facts and spectacular illustrations will inspire young readers to choose which creature they think is the deadliest in the newest picture book collaboration between Guiberson and Spirin.

Guiberson and Spirin manage to successfully convey the beauty and majesty of this forest and its denizens in two dimensions, and a list of organizations devoted to preserving the forest provides further information. An author's note adds urgency to the message about the importance of preservation. --Booklist, starred review on Life in the Boreal Forest Taking readers through the seasons, Guiberson and Spirin present a verbal and pictorial treasury for nature lovers and young researchers alike. --School Library Journal on Life in the Boreal Forest Beautiful and useful. --Kirkus Reviews on Life in the Boreal Forest Each of the stunning paintings in this catalog of the boreal forest, the great northern forest, is breathtakingly beautiful. They are in the style of Audubon and other great naturalist painters. They breathe life into the creatures, give texture to their fur and feathers and capture a sense of place. --The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio on Life in the Boreal Forest
