A bold, bright and fascinating Nature Storybook about one of the world's most hated creatures - the snake!

A bold, bright and fascinating Nature Storybook by award-winning writer and zoologist Nicola Davies, about one of the world's most hated creatures - the snake! Perhaps it's the way they slither, or maybe it's their slimy, scaly skin ... whatever the reason, many of us shiver at the thought of a snake - and so does the little girl in this book. But the rest of her family loves them and as they tell her more about snakes (did you know they have no eyelids, smell with their tongues and can swim?) she has a change of heart, and by the end of the book she loves them too. Luciano Lozano's stylish, colourful and informative illustrations perfectly match the warmth and humour of the text.

5 stars
This is a brilliant mix of fact and fiction. It is a really funny story but is also filled with so much information about snakes, it would appeal to children who often prefer factual writing. We adored the illustrations which really helped my young children understand some of the more complicated vocabulary.

5 stars
A brilliant book which combines fact and fiction. The daughter of the family of snake lovers hates snakes and throughout the story all the popular things that people say about snakes, forky tongue, slimy skin are explained.

The fictional story is written in a casual font and the factual information is inserted in a more formal fashion.
