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.
