Fireflies aren't the only animals with the power to glow in the dark. In this book, young readers will meet eight creatures that emit light from their bodies. Some use sparkling lights to attract a mate, while others create a sudden flash to scare their predators. Some animals even shine a light to lure their prey close--and then attack their unsuspecting victim! These are some of the surprising facts kids will discover in the amazing world of bioluminescent animals. Eye-popping photos and clear, simple text bring these one-of-a-kind creatures to vivid life.

Glow-in-the-Dark Animals

Creatures that make their own light are inherently fascinating, and this nicely crafted book in the Animals with Super Powers series will take readers beyond the glow of fireflies, introducing such bioluminescent animals as the cucujo beetle from South America. Ranging in size from dinoflagellates (which cannot be seen with the naked eye) to deep-sea jellyfish, the nine creatures showcased in this short overview are fascinating and far ranging. Each two-page spread features large text with key terms in bold, colorful photographs of the animal in its environment, and inset text boxes offering additional trivia. Key terms are listed in the glossary, and ease of use is promoted through a table of contents and an index. A short reading list is also provided for further research. Other titles in the four-book series focus on animals that change color, translucent creatures, and animals that carry an electric charge.
