A bold, bright and fascinating Nature Storybook about one of the world's most hated creatures - the snake! A bold, bright and fascinating Nature Storybook by award-winning writer and zoologist Nicola Davies, about one of the world's most hated creatures - the snake! Perhaps it's the way they slither, or maybe it's their slimy, scaly skin ... whatever the reason, many of us shiver at the thought of a snake - and so does the little girl in this book. But the rest of her family loves them and as they tell her more about snakes (did you know they have no eyelids, smell with their tongues and can swim?) she has a change of heart, and by the end of the book she loves them too. Luciano Lozano's stylish, colourful and informative illustrations perfectly match the warmth and humour of the text.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2—Readers may agree with the young serpent-loathing protagonist of this book, but her family doesn't. When they respond to her declaration "I really, really, REALLY don't like snakes!" with a resounding "WHY?" the stage is set for a series of complaints. With each argument, the girl finds herself backsliding. Her objections—slithering movements, slimy skin, flicking tongues, and staring eyes—are all overcome with explanations and rebuttals. Soon she is sharing interesting facts with her family, and (no surprise here) she finally announces her change of heart. Pet snakes that are reminiscent of those in Tomi Ungerer's Crictor (HarperCollins, 1958) are everywhere to be found, while snake skins decorate the family's furniture, shoes, rugs, walls, and the book's endpapers. Cartoon artwork and italicized text are used for the fictional story, while a more realistic art style with standard text for factual elements. Most snakes are identified, and brief back matter adds additional information. VERDICT While many readers won't be as easily converted as the book's narrator, this title may spur them on to learn more.—Carol S. Surges, formerly at Longfellow Middle School, Wauwatosa, WI
