Fabulous Fishes




Dive into the underwater world of fantastic fishes and their habitats!
Fish come in all sorts of interesting shapes, sizes, and colors—and many of them can do amazing things as well. Can you imagine fish that leap and glide? Fish that crawl on the land? Fish that flash lights? They're all real! From the spiky lionfish and the brightly colored clownfish to lanternfishes and hatchetfishes that flash lights so they can find each other in the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean, this book explores the remarkable breadth of sea life.
With simple, rhyming text and bright, bold colors, author-illustrator Susan Stockdale introduces different kinds of fish and the underwater world they call home. An afterword offers fascinating facts and a closer look at each fish.

Praise for Fabulous Fishes

"Stockdale uses simple rhymes and clear, colorful acrylic artwork to introduce the fascinating underwater world of fishes."—School Library Journal "An exciting way to prepare kids for a visit to the aquarium."—Booklist "Every turn of the page reveals vivid paintings of exotic as well as common underwater creatures to delight all ages. If the paintings are the feast, Stockdale's words are the dessert. And she selects them carefully."—The Washington Post "Youngsters will tap their toes to the rhythm as they are simultaneously presented with a great variety of fish and tickled by the unexpected aspects and behavioral characteristics of each type. . . Bold, graphic illustrations rendered in colorful acrylic portray each fish realistically. . . An excellent teaching tool and an appealing introduction to the wide world of fish."—Kirkus Reviews
