Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Lorimer
Who knew there were so many kinds of transparent animals in the world? This absorbing book covers nine of them: clearwing butterflies; glass frogs; jellyfish; glass squids; transparent shrimp, sea butterflies, octopuses, zebrafish, and frogs. Some, such as the transparent octopus, are barely known by biologists; others, such as the transparent frog, exist only in laboratories, where scientists "use the transparent animals to learn more about diseases such as cancer and how they develop." Concepts such as camouflage are explained clearly, using examples that will appeal to a great variety of readers. The full-color photographs on every page are beautiful and fascinating. Backmatter includes a glossary, index, and bibliography. From the "Animals with Super Powers" series. Reviewer: Sara Lorimer
