    *Starred Review* This is an engaging premise for a picture book. Crisp, full-color, full-page photos provide close-ups of various sea life—fish, starfish, eels, slugs, jellyfish—and compare their physical appearances to standard foods that most children will recognize: pancakes, chocolate chip cookies, lettuce, bananas, apples, even egg yolks. Each two-page spread features an oversize caption, an accessible one-paragraph description of the subject and how its distinct makeup helps it survive in the ocean (camouflage, absorbing food or sunlight, armor, attracting mates, propulsion), and a standard list of basic data (aliases, species, size, range, habitat, predators). Included in this last section is also a fun fact: the cauliflower jellyfish, for example, has no hearts, brains, or blood. A couple pages of introductory text introduce the concept of biodiversity; the concluding text encourages appreciation and respect for all kinds of sea critters, and plants the seed that readers might discover some new species of their own someday. A glossary introduces cool new vocabulary (filaments, scutes, tentacles, tubercles); a concluding quiz asks readers to identify photos as sea food or me food. This is sure to be a hit with young audiences, whether shared during storytime or read (and reread) by deep-sea enthusiasts. Preschool-Grade 2. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
