What living thing would you LEAST like to be left alone with in a room late at night?
A large, hairy, tropical spider?
A poisonous snake?
A large rat? – with red eyes of course!
Or would you go in for smaller fry like a mouse, or a scorpion, or an ant?
Are these unpleasant creatures in every case as nasty as they seem?
Read the book and find out ….
Strictly for older boys and girls!
