He meets fifteen year old Sinter, a spoiled rich girl, who is running away from an arranged marriage and their uneasy friendship will eventually form an unshakeable bond, as together they face adventure and danger as two young eco-warriors in a truly threatening world.

Each location brings its own epic challenges - whether it's the first climb of an arctic ice fall in Greenland, the first recorded navigation of a South American river, or the first exploration of the world’s longest cave system in Mexico. Packed with fascinating facts and drawing on Steve's own amazing experiences, this is the third Deadly factbook for Stev.

We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. He has just six months to travel to six continents and find 60 of the deadliest creatures on the planet for the 26-part Children’s BBC series of the same name. And if that wasn't enough, in ‘The Venom Hunter’ he endured the stings of hundreds of bullet ants (the world’s most painful stinging invertebrate) in an initiation ceremony.He has written several books, including Predators, Looking for Adventure and Venom, and he is an author for the Rough Guide series. From that moment on the seven-year-old boy was captivated: he knew this was somewhere he needed to go, this was a place he needed to explore. From the nine-feet long Komodo Dragon through species such as the King Cobra, Lionfish, Fat-tail Scorpion and Poison Dart-frog to the diminutive but lethal Black Widow Spider, author Steve Backshall takes a fascinating look at the different types of natural venoms.

Escaping the Clan takes Saker and Sinter on a deadly, dangerous journey through Vietnam, over the South China Sea back to Borneo. Our team is made up of book lovers who are dedicated to sourcing and providing the best books for kids. He began his career working for the Rough Guides and freelance travel writing for various publications including The Independent and The Times. The 60 animals, insects include hippo, black mamaba, great white shark, ghost bat, cuttle fish, king cobra, mountain lion, tiger shark, army ants, polar bear and many more.Steve's global adventure spans the continents and his encounters range from famous killers such as the African Cheetah, the Neotropical Piranha and the North American Grizzly Bear to less famous but no less deadly animals.

The book serves as a companion to Backshall's popular TV series, and captures the most remarkable techniques and fearsome weapons in the animal kingdom. It is not included in promotions available to our main range products, as stated in our terms of service.

It’s a fascinating book and our grandson who is learning to read could recognise the names of creatures due to following the show.
