(Author walks into a room. Sitting at a desk in a large leather office chair sits a skeptical publisher)
Publisher: An entire book about things that have venom? Sorry, but I don't think you've got the makings of book here.
Author: There are more venomous animals than most people realize, I think.
Publisher: (Slightly Annoyed) Right, snakes. Look, we have enough snake books at the moment. If you don't mind, I'm very busy now-
Author: Wait! There are more. There's snakes, sure, but there's also spiders and frogs and -
Publisher: Okay, so there are three animals. Still, it seems like a stretch.
Author: And bees, and salamanders, and -
Publisher: Hmm. I guess I never thought of those other ones.
Author: And ants, and scorpions, and -
Publisher: Alright! I was wrong. It seems that there are a ton of animals that kids find fascinating, that also happen to be deadly. You got me. Tell me more.
Author: Here's what I'm thinking: tons of quality information, plenty of color photos of the venomous animals in action, and a healthy dollop of weird/crazy sidebar stories to grab readers' attention. What do you think?
Publisher: Yes, Yes, it's genius! Those pesky reluctant readers will love it for the exotic animals, exciting pictures, and crazy facts. Teachers will love it for the high quality information. I think that we've got a hit on our hands! A quality non-fiction selection if I've ever seen one.
Author: (Polishing fingernails on shirt) You're welcome.
Great Book! Very informative about things to avoid that can kill you, or make you very ill.
Illustrations are very good.

Great photos. Many interesting facts. Book written with fun voice. Would be a good teaching example of how to use voice in non fiction writing. Kids will love it.Published 23 months ago by Merlinsaunt
This is a GREAT book. My 4 year old learned so much about venom, and a great deal about the creatures that produce venom. It is great for kids up to about 16 yrs.Published on September 13, 2012 by Julie
