Find out the difference between crocodiles and alligators and why crocodiles are fast, strong and good at staying alive! Did you know that although crocodiles' jaws are strong when they are shutting, a rubber band would stop them opening (but it would be hard to get close enough to put it on)! The lively text is complemented perfectly by dramatic illustrations. Oxford Reds is our first major superseries for newly confident readers. Each book is on a real-life subject, with a simple lively text and richly coloured, realistic illustrations. Many are written by well-known children's writers. Each one is written by an author who communicates enthusiasm, passion and understanding for the subject. Approved by educational experts, Oxford Reds contain clear type, simple sentence structures, information boxes, contents pages, alphabetical glossaries, and parents and teachers notes. Other subjects include: Sharks; Snakes; Frogs and Toads; Dogs; Rockets; Wolves; Dinosaurs; Spiders; Whales. These books will appeal particularly to the beginner reader who prefers factual information to a story.
