Entertaining, informative and frightening. I bought this book with some Christmas money because it looked interesting and I love animals. I thought it might even interest my 9 year old who loves anything scary or poisonous or that can eat you. I've decided that he is a little too young for some of the grim, though well-written, accounts of the injuries and deaths caused by all manner of creatures contained in this book.

That said; this is a very good read even if chapter 15 (Insects) made me change my sheets at 11:30pm and start bright and early the next day cleaning everything and getting rid of anything resembling clutter. (I need to do all that again now...) This book may make you nervous for a bit. It might make you think twice before you interact with wild creatures or let your child ride an elephant or sit next to a young tiger for a photo and that is a very good thing.
