Weird & Wonderful Fish

Weird & Wonderful Fish
Nature's Monsters (Water Creatures)
by Gerrie McCall
juvenile non-fiction
Milwaukee, WI : Gareth Stevens Pub., 2006

Fish have always seemed rather strange to me. This book just solidified my opinion. Weird & Wonderful Fish is one of those books that is creepy enough to actually be fascinating. If you think the creature on the front is strange looking, wait until you see some of the others!  The only drawback was the book contained illustrations instead of photographs. It would have been interesting to see real photos of these truly bizarre ocean-dwellers. You will not be finding me exploring the ocean depths any time soon (unless of course it is through a book from the library).
