Description

Sound like an expert. Tattoos, body piercing, jewellery and face painting. People have been decorating their bodies for thousands of years. Who thought that flat heads were the latest in fashion? Who had a 4,000 year-old tattoo? Now you can find out. Get the facts. Then read 'Death by Arsenic', a story about what happens when you start to believe the adverts.

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
