Product Description

Some creatures are small and cute and fluffy. Some are cold and slimy with gigantic venomous teeth. Which would you rather read about? Tip: if it’s the first lot, don’t read Nasty Nature – because all the animals in here are deadly and disgusting and very nasty indeed! Erk!

So only read on if you’re ready to find out:

  • how vampire bats slurp blood
  • what a singing gorilla sounds like
  • which sickening snake will kill you quickest
  • how to speak awful animal language
  • which frog lives in a toilet cistern
  • how to dodge a man-eating tiger
  • which Japanese fish dish can kill you

Hungry hunters on the prowl. Creepy creatures lurking. Death on the dinner plate. Yes – it’s murder out there!

    I got this book from a charity shop. I read it. I loved it. I learned.

    Now I’ve read it about 10 times, I stll find it hilarious.

    However, I DO NOT agree that rats are filthy and hideous and all of that nonsense because they are the cleanest (Drawing with cats) and one of the most intelligent animals in the world!
