From Clive Gifford, award-winning author of 100 Inventions that Made History and the Kingfisher Football Encyclopedia, comes this extraordinary look at the miraculous ways that creatures can survive.

Meet the incredible survivors of the animal world: heroic pets, frauds and fakers, long-living legends and sneaky tricksters. Dead or Alive? features all sorts of curious creatures, including tough tardigrades, courageous cats, plucky pigeons and even zombie crabs! Brought to life with the hilarious artwork of Sarah Horne, illustrator of My Brilliant Life and Other Disasters.

The more extreme aspects of the animal kingdom will enthrall young readers aged 7+. Look out for Clive's other unmissable books The Ultimate Animal Criminals and Atlas Oddities. Clive Gifford is an award-winning author of books for children and adults including the astonishing Dead or Alive, the creepy Book of Bad Things and the brain mangling Think Again and Eye Benders. He is passionate that books should entertain, inform and amaze whenever possible.

A contributor to Encyclopedia Britannica, Clive's books have won School Library Association, PBS, Smithsonian and Times Educational Supplement, as well as the prestigious Royal Society Young People's Book Prize. Sarah lives in London, and has illustrated many children's books including Monster House, The Sesame Seade Mysteries and Guinea Pigs Online.

Continuously drawing from a young age, Sarah's strength is in her draftsmanship and line work, she loves colour and one of the real joys of her illustration work is adding the extra humour in the detail. Sarah likes to travel, loves music, she doesn't care for mice and loves a good cup of coffee.

Sarah Horne

Sarah Horne grew up in snowy Derbyshire, UK with some goats and a brother. She learnt to draw whilst trying to explain her reasoning for an elaborate haircut at the age of nine.

Alongside working on some very funny children’s titles, Sarah has also worked on commissions for The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Kew Gardens, Sesame Street and for IKEA as their Children’s Illustrator In Residence.

She now draws, paints, writes and giggles from underneath a pile of paper at her studio in London.
