I (Don't) Like Snakes

Publisher: Walker Books

This is an unusual and amusing tale about a girl who doesn't share her family's enthusiasm for snakes. However, as they tell her more about the incredible reptiles, she has a change of heart.

Written by a zoologist, this extremely informative book contains a wealth of fascinating facts, such as snakes have no eyelids so cannot blink; they use their tongues to smell; and after killing their prey they swallow their victims whole.

There are two styles of illustration and text, to distinguish between the fictional story and the factual elements. The sketchy illustrations add humour, and an index and bibliography are a useful addition. This is a great book for children who love to absorb factual information, and of course for snake lovers too.
