Summary

More
Ever wonder what would happen if the largest lizard in the world came face to face with the king of all snakes? These two hunters are well equipped for taking down prey, but which one would walk away from the encounter? A side-by-side comparison helps readers size up the strengths of each animal—teeth, fangs, skeletons, scales—and provides some eye-widening facts along the way.

  • The king cobra's venom is strong enough to kill an elephant.
  • The Komodo dragon has shark-like teeth and sometimes eats its own offspring!

This fascinating book offers a close-up look at these two dangerous species, and lets adventurous readers decide for themselves who reigns supreme.

About this Series

This innovative science series introduces young readers to animal species by pitting two creatures against one another and asking kids to predict which one would prevail. Each book is illustrated with vivid, full-color pictures and features two animals that rarely, if ever, meet in the wild. Readers use information about each animal's physical attributes, nearest relatives, diet, survival tactics, and more to determine which creature would win in a fight. With easy-to-navigate layouts and just a few key facts per page, these books encourage kids to draw scientific conclusions by using reasoning skills and creative thinking.

About the Author

Back in 1985, Jerry Pallotta was an insurance salesman, looking for creative ways to teach his children their ABCs. At the age of 32, his imaginative ideas led to him to write and publish his very first book, The Ocean Alphabet Book. He originally sold 5000 copies to the New England Aquarium, where it became a bestseller. He has since created more than 20 alphabet books and math books, too. Pallotta has four brothers, two sisters, and 72 first cousins!
