100 Deadliest Things on the Planet

by Anna Claybourne

Packed full of the deadliest things on Earth! Teeth, claws, stinging spines, volcanoes, and towering tsunamis are all described and given a "deadly factor" rating.
The world is a dangerous place; everywhere you look there is something deadlier than the last. There are animals that can use an arsenal of deadly weapons — teeth, claws, stinging spines, powerful pincers, or scary suckers — to fight, hunt, or defend themselves. There are natural disasters — from towering tsunamis to massive volcanic eruptions — that can destroy whole cities in the blink of an eye. With 100 DEADLIEST THINGS ON THE PLANET, young readers will learn all about these ferocious animals, deadly disasters, and much more!
Along with all of the interesting facts, 100 DEADLIEST THINGS ON THE PLANET includes side panels, a "deadly factor" rating, and photos throughout to help enhance the level of fright.
