Packed with facts about both natural and man-made poisons, from foxgloves and hemlock to rat-killer and lead paints, this book also contains many tales of murder, intrigue and accidental death.

Psst! It's true! This is the best book on POISONS you'll ever read!

There's poison in pips, harm in herbs and definitely death in dyes. Poison is everywhere!

Read about toxic wallpaper that killed even bedbugs. Find out why buns were bad for bun-buyers and how a poison might cure cancer. Bone up on murder mysteries, including the one about glow-in-the-dark soup. But don't tell anyone how much you know, or they might lock you up.
