Book Description

March 22 2005 DK Eyewitness Books
Discover the amazing world of fishes -- how they evolved, how they live and their weird and wonderful habits.

Here is an exciting and informative guide to the fascinating world of fishes. Superb color photographs of tropical fishes, eels, seahorses and more offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the natural history of fishes, how they behave and how they survive. See the lethal jaws of a piranha, a porcupine fish "puffing up", how a dogfish swims, growth rings on a fish scale, what a fish looked like 400 million years ago, and a fish with legs. Learn how a school stays together, why some fishes swim upside down, how a stingray stings, which male fish can "give birth", how stickleback builds its nest, and why fishes need water to breathe. Discover why a shark must keep swimming, how a ray can give an electric shock, what eyespots are for, how an archerfish "shoots" a victim, and much, much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars fish book for the TV generation June 18 2002
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my son, my 3 y/o fish enthusiast, and the two of us have learned so much. The text, the captions and the marvelous pictures combine to make this a top quality product. My three year old has learned the parts of the fish, how they breathe. He has learned about the seahorse and about his favorite: the flounder (flatfish). The organization of this book allows for kids with short attention spans to still absorbe immense amounts of information. I highly recomend this book for anyone, even if you're not yet interested in fish, yoiu soon will be!

This book on fish is terrific and just what my grandson wants...real photographs of fish. It was used but you'd never know...it looks like new. Great find, great price, and shipped promptly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent addition to the series March 11 2007
By Lydia Joyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
For those who are new to the Eyewitness format, it consists of thematically arranged two-page spreads of brilliant photographs on a white background. There is an intro paragraph in the upper left-hand corner, but most of the text is in the captions that go with the photographs. Generally, the biological sciences titles are the strongest in this series, since other topics often need a more organized progression of topics. You'll get a lot of information out of these books, but you won't get a systematic anaylsis.

This series is strongest in the biological sciences, and this book is no exception. Excellently organized, extremely clear, and with incredible illustrations, this is a book to treasure.
