Summary, etc.:
Offering helpful, humor-laced advice on how to avoid getting stung, bit, poked, jabbed, or poisoned and what to do if it happens this guide explains everything from rashes to anaphylaxis, tetanus to spider bites, and cat-scratch fever to rabies, all in kid-friendly language. A strong foundation in biology grounds the discussion, which explains how certain plants and animals can be dangerous and reveals medical information on the physical reactions they can produce. The topical trivia and goofy puns make learning fun both in the classroom and at home.
