Description

Which octopus has floppy ears? How do you spot a see-through squid? Which creature stands without moving for sixty days? (Outside, and in winter.) Are you hungry? How about 3,000 ants for breakfast, and again for lunch? Welcome to the world of weird creatures. Get the facts. Then read a scary story about a creature that refuses to die: 'Is It Alive?'.

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.
