Synopsis

Of the River by Gerard Cheshire

Scary Creatures is an entertaining series investigating the more grisly aspects of natural history. Do monsters live in rivers? What makes piranhas so scary? What is a 'living fossil'? How can fish be shocking? This book takes a look at river-dwelling creatures from around the globe, from the tiny-but-deadly mosquito to aggressive hippos and giant catfish. Scary Creatures of the River is packed with facts written in an accessible question-and-answer format. It includes special x-ray pages that 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.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Lovereading4kids is great, we get books really early never late. We love to read and review, and think you would like it too. The excitement

Jasmine Harris-Hart, age 12

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

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 as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
