" Fascinating. Sarah Albee is one of my favorites. " said.

" Although readers will not get any "how to" information (phew), they will gain copious info about poisons, the history of them, what they may have been used for, and plenty of poisonous blunders made throughout time! Fantastic nonfiction read for middle grade readers. " said.

" Reviewed for professional publication. " said.

"What a page-turner! I was lucky enough to get to read an advance copy of POISON, and I couldn't put it down. I imagine that young readers will have the same experience--even if they grab this title just hoping to look up a quick fact about a historical poisoning, they'll find themselves sucked in quickly by the numerous compelling true stories and fascinating scientific facts about how poisons work.

This would be a wonderful book to read aloud as a family, too. I read parts aloud to my husband, and we both marveled at how much we learned from each "tox box" and "medical moment."

Highly recommended!
" said.

"Deliciously dark fun! Sarah Albee's POISON is the perfect mix of science, history, mystery, and entertainment, and readers of many different genres will be thoroughly engaged by this book. I know I was! From ancient times to today (and beyond!), Albee shows us how poisons--both natural and man-made--have affected humans lives and culture. The facts are shocking and fascinating, but broken down in a way that makes them accessible. There's also a ton of humor to balance the heavy subject matter, with puns and sarcasm galore, especially in the titles and captions. And all of it is tied together with a compelling design featuring sidebars, pullouts, photos, and illustrations. There are also some serious nonfiction features, including a table of contents, author's note, acknowledgements, notes, selected bibliography, research guide, index, and more. A highly recommended middle-grade nonfiction." said.
