Synopsis

Scary Creatures of the Night by John Malam

Scary Creatures is an entertaining series investigating the more grisly aspects of natural history. Why are some creatures active at night? How do they adapt to life in the dark? And which ones should we be afraid of? The book surveys the whole range of nocturnal animals: mammals, reptiles, birds, insects, fish, spiders - with a brief look at such imaginary horrors as vampires and werewolves, too. Scary Creatures of the Night is packed with facts written in an accessible question-and-answer format. Special x-ray pages enable readers to see how the internal structure of an animal corresponds to its external appearance. The book features startlingly realistic illustrations and impressive photographs. Informative captions, a complete glossary and an index make this title an ideal educational text. It includes matt covers with Spot UV lamination and embossed logo.
