Each of the books in this new series, "Life in the Sea," offers excellent photographs and a straightforward text about the major body of water noted in the title. The Indian Ocean, which is quite warm, is an excellent place for coral reefs. They teem with marine life and Wu captures the glorious colors of the plant and animal life in his photographs. The unusual cat shark with markings like a leopard and the zebra horn shark are just a few of the unusually patterned and colored fish. The pictures have the quality of a National Geographic article and the entire series would make a great addition to a school or classroom library. A glossary, short bibliography and index are included.
