Steve Backshall, (Compiled by) Jinny Johnson, (Designed by) Sue Michniewick

deadly 60Join DEADLY 60 presenter Steve Backshall in the world’s deadliest book about animals, packed with fascinating facts, killer statistics and stunning photographs. Combined with his own incredible experiences with creatures, large and small, Steve reveals tricks of camouflage, feats of strength, endurance, teamwork and speed, as well as giving us a glimpse into the lives of extremeophiles and looking at some of our planet’s endangered species.

This is the first information book I have reviewed and I really enjoyed it! I’ve been a fan of Deadly 60 on TV . So when I got given this book I was SO pleased. When I moved house I lost it but now I’ve found it AND I LOVE IT!

It’s only 78 pages long and doesn’t take long to read so it’s not too hard to read! This would be a handy book to take on holiday because it is pocket sized and easy to slip into a suitcase or bag, perfect for reading on a plane or train.

Follow the footsteps of the Deadly team and discover the secrets of the animal kingdom as they reveal fascinating facts and killer stats in their guide to reptiles and amphibians!

It’s fun and cool, boys and girls everywhere will love it.

Did you know… That the Basilisk lizard can walk on water?! And the Komodo dragon is the world’s biggest Lizard? These are all facts from the book!

Verdict: This was probably the hardest book to review because I couldn’t explain the story though I really enjoyed this book. I think it’s for boys and girls everywhere aged 8 to 12.
