About the Author:

Patricia Lauber is the author of more than sixty-five books for young readers. Many of them are in the field of science, and their range reflects the diversity of her own interests-bats, dolphins, dogs, volcanoes, earthquakes, the ice ages, the Everglades, the planets, earthworms. Two of her books, SEEDS: POP STICK GLIDE and JOURNEY TO THE PLANETS, were nonfiction nominees for The American Book Awards. She was the 1983 winner of The Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Award for her overall contribution to children's nonfiction literature.

As well as writing books, Ms. Lauber has been editor of Junior Scholastic, editor-in-chief of Science World, and chief editor, science and mathematics, of The New Book of Knowledge

A graduate of Wellesley College, she is married and lives in Connecticut. When not writing, she enjoys hiking, sailing, traveling, cooking, reading, and listening to music.



Holly Keller has illustrated a number of books in the Lets-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, including Be a Friend to Trees. She is also the author and illustrator of many picture books, including Island Baby and Horace.

Ms. Keller lives in West Redding, Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 This broad introduction to snakes is concisely written and well organized. The text briefly and accurately describes basic anatomical features, general physical and behavioral characteristics (plus a few special characteristics of poisonous snakes), senses, methods of locomotion, hunting and feeding techniques, natural enemies, egg-laying, and the birth of young. Concepts are simply explained, few scientific terms are employed, and the few species mentioned directly are referred to by their common names. The brightly colored, cartoon-like illustrations that appear on all but two pages are well coordinated with the text; however, they are so over-generalized that scales are seldom shown and body markings are incomplete. There are other general introductions available covering much the same information and which have illustrations more straightforward and scientific in their approach. Two good examples are Selsam's A First Look at Poisonous Snakes (Walker, 1987) and Petty's Reptiles (Gloucester Pr, 1987). Karey Wehner, San Francisco Public Library8sljone 8sljone
