SNAKES by Seymour Simon


by Seymour Simon

Age Range: 10 - 12

Pub Date: May 30th, 1992
ISBN: 0-06-022529-7
Publisher: HarperCollins

 The dramatic cover photo of an orangey-gold boa snaking from a black background will insure that this doesn't sit long on the shelf. Inside, riveting full-page color photos on every spread and the clearly written (if rather difficult) text on life cycle, anatomy, reproduction, classification, movement, diet, and poisonous snakes will also draw an appreciative audience. Another winner from the prolific, reliable Simon. (Nonfiction. 10-12)
