Submitter: Who doesn’t want middle school students to learn about poison? This book has an entire chapter dedicated to lead paint and other dangerous products containing lead. Poisons might be interesting, but maybe something with current, accurate information would be better.
Holly: Sure, middle schoolers have all kinds of reasons to need info about poison! This is definitely too old to be useful, though. What a bizarre cover, too. I get that those are all poisonous substances, but it has a very psychedelic feel to it. It’s the coolest thing about the book, actually.
