Shark Attacks & Spider Snacks.
Written and Illustrated by Roy Condy.
Grades 3 - 6 / Ages 8 - 11.
Think all turtles are slow? Think again. Soft-shelled turtles are the fastest turtles alive. They're pretty funny to look at: with their flat, round shells and pig-like snouts, they resemble pan-cakes with noses. But these are some serious turtles. Not only do they bite, but one North American species can out-run humans on level ground! The clumsy-looking creature is just as quick under water. It can easily outswim a brook trout, the fastest freshwater fish.
Roy Condy came to Canada in 1946, and now makes his home in Ontario. Shark Attacks & Spider Snacks is the first book he has written, although he has long lent his talent at illustration to the world of television, text books, and children's literature. Some of the titles he's illustrated include How to Get Rid of Bad Dreams; Christopher, Please Clean Up Your Room; and the Scholastic Student Organizer Diary.
Leslie Millar is a substitute teacher and volunteer in Winnipeg schools.
