Each page is an animal claiming that it is the most amazing creature in the sea. Good facts about each animal. The animals listed are Leatherback Sea Turtle, Barrel-eyed fish, Mimic Octopus, AnglerFish, Hagfish (this one made us laugh), and seven others.
I got a bit tired of the "I am the most amazing creature in the sea" but at the end of the book the question is asked "so which creature is the most amazing?.......YOU decide." So it made the question quite relevant.
We each had our favourites of those listed, and for different reasons. My son liked the Anglerfish so we took time to learn more about this fish. Here's a video on the deep sea Anglerfish. And a link to an interesting page on the frogfish.
Here's a youtube of them in action.
Here's a list of 10 facts you may not know about Hagfish.
