Which frog uses poison to protect itself? What's more deadly, a mosquito or a crocodile? Find out in Top Ten Worst: Killer Animals . Filled with nasty creatures you certainly wouldn't want to meet, this book features advice on how to avoid a shark attack and how to combat a mosquito attack, amongst other fascinating facts and vital statistics. Colourful and humourous illustrations accompany the terrifying text, which features information on how to survive everything from the worst volcanic eruption to the world's deadliest animal. Captions and speech bubbles bring the illustrations to life while 'Vital Statistics' fact boxes fill you in on all the details. It features a full glossary and index, which backs up the scientific and historical information found within the book.
