Farndon, John Marine Superstars (Animal Bests) 32 pgs. (Hungry Tomato) Lerner, 2017. $8.00 NON-FICTION
In this book readers learn all about many sea creatures from otters to dolphins to crabs, including informative tidbits about a plethora of other creatures. Includes a combination of illustrations and photographs.
This is my favorite so far in this Hungry Tomato science grouping. The cover is incredibly unappealing and dated looking so I probably wouldn’t add this to my library. But inside it has a nice variety of illustrations, page colors, layouts, and photography. I enjoyed reading all the interesting facts. Still though, why bother with so many illustrations in an informational book when real life photos have so much more appeal to young readers.
