Use in a study of the sea. Use to inspire children about marine biology and the life that exists below the sea.

As always, the combination of the writing of Brenda Guiberson and the lush illustrationhs of Gennady Spirin create award-winning books time and time again.

In this book, very interesting, sometimes bizarre looking deep sea creatures are highlight with a description of what makes them the most amazing sea creature. The reader follows page after wonderfully detailed images of The Vampire Squid, who turns itself inside out to hide it's blackness with the added ability to create incredible bright colored lights to lure prey, the Box Jellyfish who has the deadliest venom and has no brains, backbone, lungs or gills and has 24 eyes to help find prey, and then therre is the barreleye fish who rotates their green eyes to spot prey.

There are 16 double page spreads which any curious child would find fascinating.

Various animals in the ocean make an argument for why they are most amazing. Creatures span from jellyfish to blue whales to leafy sea dragons, each describing true facts about why they are important to the ocean eco-system. The book ends with questions for the reader to consider what attributes make an animal valuable in the sea.

Short, but very informative snippets on each sea creature as they vie for the title of "the most amazing creature in the sea." Illustrations by Spirin are magnificent!
