The Midwest Book Review
Uses different fish types and short paragraphs of explanation to lure the young reader. An exceptional choice for "V", the "Viperfish," will especially attract youngsters who enjoy many-toothed denizens (Mazzola's picture is graphic). There are fish for every letter of the alphabet except for "Z", where the author ends with teh admonition that there are "zillions of fish in the ocean" - a fitting conclusion to an exceptionally interesting collection of fish facts.
