Similarly, stunning photos reveal the animals' abilities, from bioluminescence to jet propulsion. Features deep-sea fish, squid, jellyfish, and microscopic life. These two exciting books will guide the reader into a different world and will reveal creatures they never thought existed. Featuring spectacular photography and great detail into each animal, these books are sure to engage and educate any young reader. The Creatures of the series includes: Creatures of the Deep: 978-1-78171-535-2 Creatures of the Night: 978-1-78171-536-9


Features on squid jellyfish and microscopic creatures complete the picture of the teeming life of the seas and the book would be a great addition to the library for KS2 pupils from seven years old. -- John Feltwell School librarian
