Teeth, claws, horns. These are animal defenses we’re familiar with. What about slime? Toxic explosions? Blood shooting from an eye? Learn about these and other totally cool and utterly gross ways that animals protect themselves in Rebecca Johnson’s When Lunch Fights Back: Wickedly Clever Animal Defenses.
This is a short, intriguing book for older children and anyone interested in fun (and rather disgusting) facts about animals.
Rebecca Johnson has written numerous science books for children that are entertaining as well as informative, such as Zombie Makers: True Stories of Nature’s Undead and the recently published Chernobyl’s Wild Kingdom: Life in the Dead Zone.
