JUVENILE NONFICTION / Reference / General
An in-depth look at the many clever, creative, and crazy ways that animals protect themselves from predators.



For many animals, life is a constant battle to stay off a predator’s menu. So they’ve had to come up with lots of cunning ways to avoid being eaten. From camouflage and color-changing, natural armor, playing dead, great escapes, detachable body parts, and impressive ways of fighting back, the range of survival tactics in the natural world is quite astonishing (and sometimes pretty disgusting). 



How Not To Get Eaten is a fun introduction to the ingenious antipredator strategies in the natural world. Discover how meerkats post sentries to guard their homes and possums play dead, to how mimic octopuses change their shape and bombardier beetles unleash a chemical weapon attack. Perfect for children aged 7–9, the book is filled with intriguing illustrations and spectacular photographs of the amazing, obscure, and incredibly strange. You’ll never look at nature the same way again!



Fills a gap in the market. There are a wealth of animal books about predators but almost nothing that focuses on prey, especially in any real depth

A refreshing new take on an animal book that places science at the forefront—a key addition to DK’s growing list of STEAM offerings

Features lively, informative, and funny text from a talented up-and-coming author, Josette Reeves, and striking visuals from illustrator Asia Orlando

Broken down into several sections based around a theme to make the content easy to understand. Examples include: detection, safe shelters, working in groups, hiding in plain sight, armor, protective parents, and fighting back
