Dive into the underwater world of fantastic fishes and their habitats!

Fish come in all sorts of interesting shapes, sizes, and colors—and many of them can do amazing things as well. Can you imagine fish that leap and glide? Fish that crawl on the land? Fish that flash lights? They're all real!

From the spiky lionfish and the brightly colored clownfish to lanternfishes and hatchetfishes that flash lights so they can find each other in the deepest, darkest parts of the ocean, this book explores the remarkable breadth of sea life.

With simple, rhyming text and bright, bold colors, author-illustrator Susan Stockdale introduces different kinds of fish and the underwater world they call home.
