Synopsis

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.

About the author

Nicola Davies

Nicola Davies has always been besotted with animals and always secretly wanted to be a writer so it should come as no surprise that she has combined both her passions to become a best selling writer for children. Nicola studied Zoology at Cambridge University and then worked as a researcher at the BBC Natural History Unit and as a presenter on The Really Wild Show. Nicola didn’t start writing until her thirties, when she began to write scripts for children’s programmes. This was followed by her successful career as a children’s writer at Walker books. Nicola also writes for newspapers and magazines and also teaches writing at university. Some of Nicola’s best known books include: "Poo: A Natural History of the Unmentionable" and "Extreme Animals: A Guide to the Toughest Creatures on Earth".
