Snake Scientist and Looney Tunes
 

What do these have in common? They are titles of two new non-fiction books for young readers.

The first shows scientists in the process of studying snakes. The second is another book in the "Ultimate Visual Guide" series that has included Superman, Batman and the X-Men. Profusely illustrated, in other words, and full of fas-kinating pix and info.
