This is a nonfiction book about deadly creatures on earth. It talks about deadly cats and dogs, small animals, animals in the water, animals in the air, and more. It gives interesting and fun facts about these animals. It also has funny pictures to go along with these descriptions. There are enough pictures in the book to not overwhelm and elementary school aged child, and it includes goofy humor that will keep the kids attached. It also gives common sense advice on how not to get killed by many of the animals. At the end it even describes that these animals are only doing what evolution and survival require them to do.  I was pleasantly surprised by this book.
