Meet the killer plants. These plants don't bother with sunlight or water. They eat meat instead. Insects, rats, mice ...Remember - you could be next! Then find out which bean is 12,000 times more poisonous than rattlesnake venom. You'd better get the facts. Then read the story 'Where's Mr Potts?' You'll be a bit more careful next time you cut some flowers. 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.
