Children's Literature
You may think you know what a fish is until you read this nonfiction book. This informative book will open your eyes. Six short chapters are broken into manageable sections and cover various topics. The chapters include definitions and parts of most fish, funny-looking fish, strange fish reproduction, unusual ways for fish to breathe, fish that do strange things out of water, and exceptions to the rules for strange and unusual types of fish. High quality photographs accompany the text to show a variety of fish not commonly known. Facts about kinds of fish that can change their sex, produce a bucket of slime, or make head sweeps similar to metal detectors are presented in a manner that will keep the reader turning the pages for more. A useful chart about funny fishes around the world, a readable glossary and sources to find more information follow the main text. This book is part of the series "Books about Unusual Animals." It is a must for the school science curriculum. 2001, Franklin Watts/Grolier, $24.00 and $8.95. Ages 11 to 14. Reviewer:Nancy Garhan Attebury
