Meet Horris, the horrifying narrator of Scary, a non-fiction book for kids on the scarier facts of life. Horris knows all about the gross and gory, and he certainly knows how to deliver the gruesome goods, adding his own mix of dark humour and scary antics. Here kids will find important stats, such as the world's most dangerous snakes and spiders, as well as how long one would last without water in the Sahara Desert. A big hit with the 8- to 12-year-old kids, Scary doesn't shy away from blood or gore to get the facts out to its captivated reader.

My brother says, "Best book I ever read." So this book is suitable for children. I read a couple of pages and it described horrible things to children. I think it's okay.
