50 Poisonous Questions Summary

50 Poisonous Questions: A Book With Bite by Tanya Lloyd Kyi

It's a toxic world out there. Poisonous snakes, toxic herbicides, noxious fumes--poisons in one form or another are all around us. An innocent-looking flower may be lethal, and smog can make it impossible to breathe. Poisons can be the death of us, but they can also cure disease. The second book in Annick's 50 Questions series provides answers to many intriguing questions, such as: * Should you pee on a jellyfish sting? No, douse it with vinegar! * Why was the Mad Hatter mad? From working with mercury nitrate. * Can venomous lizards cure diabetes? Yes, a drug used to treat the disease comes from the Gila monster's venom. Poison Puzzles at the end of each chapter then test the readers' knowledge. Young readers who want to avoid paint that kills or leaves that give blisters can explore the fascinating and dangerous world of poisons. And don't be afraid! The killer cartoons and dead-funny text are venom-free.

Overall, a very excellent book for teens that should increase their knowledge by maintaining their interest.--Zachary G. Chauvin"Resource Links" (06/01/2011)
Sickly green pages (which may be intended to reflect the nausea these substances cause) and red headlines might be just the thing to entice readers seeking intriguing facts.--Janet S. Thompson"School Library Journal" (09/01/2011)
The sense of humour, compelling information, short readable pieces and catchy headings make this a pleasure for reading.--Aileen Wortley"Canadian Children's Book News" (08/01/2011)
This book is entertaining and informative and could be used as supplementary classroom material on a variety of biology, environmental or history related topics.--Kim Frail"The Deakin Review of Children's Literature" (07/01/2011)
As previously demonstrated by last year's fun-filled 50 Burning Questions: A Sizzling History of Fire, Tanya Lloyd Kyi has no trouble balancing the sinister and the safe.
