Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Lorimer
Eight bioluminescent animals are covered in this interesting book: fireflies, New Zealand glowworms, railroad worms, cucujo beetles, dinoflagellates, fireworms, anglerfish, and deep-sea jellyfish. "In some cases, it's clear how their special power helps them survive. In other cases, the light's purpose is still unknown." Each page has intriguing photographs of the animals. The writing is clear and informative; with both scientific facts and little bits of trivia to keep anyone's interest (Did you know that in parts of South America, people tied bags of cucujos to their feet to light the way as they walked through dark forests?). Backmatter includes a glossary, index, and bibliography. From the "Animals with Super Powers" series. Reviewer: Sara Lorimer
