Rodents of Unusual Size (R.O.U.S), Flame Spouts, Deadly Quicksand... These aren't just imaginary and horrific myths meant to keep curious explorers and wanted criminals from venturing into the Fireswamp. They actually exist! That's right. These stranger-than-fiction quirks of nature are actially not fictional at all.
*insert shock-eyed emoji here*
You'll read about these horrors and more in Nature is the Worst: 500 Reasons You'll Never Want to Go Outside Again. New to the Teen Department's Nonfiction shelf (dewey # T508.02R to be exact), this is your handy guide to all the strange, creepy, weird, and downright horrific things you can find in nature if only you dare to look. Some in distant, far-flung locales and others right in your backyard. Sometimes even hidden on your own body (shudder).
If you want a warm and fuzzy story about cuddly puppies, look elsewhere. This book is not for you. But if you want to read more about murderous ducklings, vampire deer, and storms that rain frogs (and other oddities), you'll definitely want to check out Nature is the Worst.
One thing's for certain. You'll never see the world the same way again!
