Product Description:

Grade 4-6-- Snakes are at their most beguiling in this beautifully photographed, well-organised introduction. The text succinctly describes their general physical and behavioural characteristics, and identifies the four major snake families. Fifteen species are depicted in the large, sharp, full-colour photographs that appear on approximately every other page; most closeups are so finely detailed that individual scales are visible. Other titles cover similar information. Johnson's excellent Snakes (Lerner, 1986) offers more detail on anatomy, venom, and mating behaviour. It also gives many scientific names, while Simon's title supplies only common ones. Arnold's Snake (Morrow, 1991), which features reptiles housed in the Los Angeles Zoo, is another good general introduction, discussing a greater number of species than this one. What distinguishes the Simon title, however, is its superb photography. Browsers will be attracted to the large portraits of the reptiles offered, particularly the photo of a king snake ingesting a rattlesnake and the shot of a yellow rat snake feeding on a rat. --Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library
