BOOK REVIEW:DEADLY ROCKS

DEADLY ROCKS
Kris Hirschomann
Scholastic
2014

Available: Scholastic Book Fairs

    I picked up a copy at Fortuna Middle School's Book Fair last week while looking for mysteries. I couldn't resist Deadly Rocks, because if you've read through my site, you know my husband I own a rock shop. If not, now you do. The book comes with nine rock samples. The book is short (32 pages), but full of fun facts, some rock lore and has a unique twist as to how some ordinary rocks can be dangerous and other rocks are potentially deadly poisons. I won't spoil it by leaking any more information. Younger kids, especially boys, should get a kick out of this set.

Target Audience: Grades 3-5
Mystery / suspense: fun

Kid Appeal: Boys
