Fangs, Claws & Talons: Animal Predators
(Lark Books, Nov. 1, 2007)
Stalking, swooping, pouncing, and feeding: the animals in this exciting reference are all in search of prey. Kids might not want to meet them in the wild, but they’ll enjoy encountering the world’s most feared predators while safe in their own homes. Lions, leopards, tigers, piranhas, sharks, crocodiles, bears, wolves, whales, octopuses, bats, snakes, scorpions, falcons, and other sharp-eyed creatures do their hunting across these pages, along with some that children may not think of as killers: praying mantises, puffer fish, frogs, sloths, ostriches, and starfish. Organized by type (fast predators, forest predators, birds of prey), and with big, bold, and lavish pictures, Fangs, Claws & Talons stands out from the rest. There’s plenty of cool information to fascinate young readers.
