Afraid of the Water

This series explores the danger posed by several varieties of well-known sea creatures. Each volume begins with a documented encounter in which the animal has perpetrated an injury on an unsuspecting human. The books are fortified by “Danger” fact boxes throughout, which provide related tidbits such as information on the anatomy of a moray eel’s jaw. The series approach will jibe well with the thrill-seeking nature of kids, though some may find the books scary. Print further-reading resources and suitable Web sites are suggested, but the abundance of close-up color photographs will be what clinches the deal for librarians. This innovative take on a popular subject will elicit lively classroom discussions and inspired reports.
