Whether it's used to hunt, find a friend, or escape an enemy, bioluminescence—the ability to glow—is a unique adaptation in nature. From the common firefly to the luminous green foxfire mushroom, and from the fierce-looking anglerfish to the mesmerizing vampire squid, these plants and animals are sure to astonish readers up to 7 and grown-ups as well. Vivid full-page photos of some surreal deep sea dwellers are among the highlights of this book, and W.H. Beck provides informative captions for the images.

"Set against black backdrops, the photographs are often hauntingly beautiful, and closing pages note the creatures' habitats, actual size, and binomial nomenclature."—Publishers Weekly
