Creeps from the Deepby Leighton R. Taylor, L. R. Taylor, Norbert Wu (Illustrator)
Underwater photographer Norbert Wu and jounalist Leighton Taylor dive to the ocean's depths to show us the fascinating creatures living there. Learn why the light fish glows, how mega-mouth finds food, and how 10-foot long worms survive near the earth's core. Detailed, yet understandable, explanations of pressure and temperature bring the cold and mysterious underwater world to life, while descriptions of the unusual animals that live in the depths will fascinate young readers curious about the sea. Incredible color photographs, sidebars, and a detailed glossary accompany this engaging text and make Creeps from the Deep a useful tool for classrooms and libraries.
