Dead or Alive?
The first of two weird and wonderful animal-fact books. Clive Gifford has written award-winning books designed to engage readers with the wonders and quirks of science and technology, and in his latest he features animal survivors. Using a zoologist consultant and with brightly coloured informative cartoon illustration by Sarah Horne, this is a treasure trove of information for inquiring junior readers, employing a variety of methods of eye-catching presentation on its busy pages, suited to varying ages and abilities. There are serious, scientific explanations, accurate terminology, but also amazing short facts, and individual animal true stories.
As well as a contents list, Gifford's book has a quiz to check what you've learnt, further reading suggestions, a glossary and an index.
