Booklist Review

Gr. 3^-5. Landau's True Book--Animals series entries introduce species of fish that are of special interest to children. An almost-square format, large type, and plenty of captioned photographs in full color give the volumes their distinctive look. Jellyfish explores the structure, variety, and unique features of these otherworldly sea creatures. Siamese Fighting Fish discusses the varieties bred for sale in pet shops as well as those living in the wild. Perhaps because the species is known mainly as an aquarium fish, the book is classified in the 600s. Other volumes in the series appear in the 500s, although they may also include information on the specific fish as pets. Check the Series Roundup in this issue for volumes on piranhas and sea horses. --Carolyn Phelan
