Summary, etc.: "Dive thirteen thousand feet below the ocean's surface, where no ray of sunlight can penetrate. Resources are scarce, and fellow inhabitants scarcer. This is life in the midnight zone--life for the anglerfish, known as the Seadevil of the Deep. Still largely a mystery to scientists, the deep-sea anglerfish is a true source of fascination and awe. To some, the fish resembles a prehistoric creature forgotten by time; to others, she is the embodiment of power, grace, and grit, using her remarkable physical attributes and a talent for deception to survive one of the harshest environments on the planet. In Anglerfish, author Elaine M. Alexander and illustrator Fiona Fogg shine a small light on this mesmerizing, unforgettable creature. A captivating text paired with stunning artwork complement not only STEM but also language arts and history curricula. More facts about the anglerfish--from how it hunts to the surprising way a female mates with far tinier males--await curious readers in the back matter. Deep in the darkest part of the ocean, visit a primordial, fierce-toothed fish that draws in prey with its own bioluminescent lure." --

Anglerfish: the Seadevil of the Deep


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Alexander probes the depths of the ocean in this fantastically illustrated study of anglerfish. The book follows a female anglerfish (only females grow the distinctive glowing lure and fierce jaws) from her time as a small fry near the ocean's surface through her growth and descent to the midnight zone, where she captures prey, finds a mate, and spawns. Fogg mixes full- and double-page illustrations with panel artwork to capture details and drama of the anglerfish's life, and other deep-sea creatures make appearances, as well. The narrative text reads like a story, though occasionally flowery turns of phrase cloud its meaning. The illustrations and detailed back matter, which delves into ocean zones and the anglerfish's lifecycle, should clear up any lingering confusions for the reader, however. Readers will glean a lot of fascinating information about this curious creature, especially the unique relationship between males and females--and their dramatically different appearances. This will be a solid addition to marine-life science units and introductions to bioluminescence.
