Underwater is an amazing place. There is also some pretty disgusting stuff underwater! From creatures regrowing body parts to parasites living on fish, this book teaches children the science behind gross stuff underwater. Fascinating, educational information about the odd-looking anglerfish, the strange eating habits of the starfish and the octopus, the yucky defense mechanism of the sea cucumber, and other underwater grossness are also included. Colorful graphics, oversized photographs, and short, engaging sentences will encourage reluctant readers to learn more about gross stuff underwater!
