This was a factual book about creatures that glow in the dark. I found it really interesting and learnt about bioluminescence and biofluorescence and how they can be used to help our oceans and scientists to track diseases. I was surprised to see that owls, puffins, platypus and hawksbill turtles glow up too! I would definitely recommend this book to others as its full of interesting and surprising facts.

Good book, told you about all glowing animals and how humans learn from it. Would recommend if you like science.

I thought that it was really good because it gave me facts, but it also had a story to it. I chose this one as a fact book because it looked really good, some books look good but they actually aren't, I thought I would give curious creatures a chance to actually impress me and it really did, I am really happy that I have got it. I think that if I saw somebody that also likes animals, that glow in the dark, I would recommend this book, I would say "try this book, it is really good, it is all about creatures that glow in the dark"

The book is full of surprises. I did not know about so many creatures who are such colourful and beautiful. I also now know that more animals are living in sea than on land. Nice book.

~We share our planet with amazing animals, such as bioluminescent fireflies and anglerfish, fluorescent frogs and flying squirrels, which shine and sparkle and glitter with light. Learn how and why they glow, and discover that you have more in common with these dazzling creatures than you might expect… ~ I loved this book! It was pretty short so only took me about 30 min to read but it was great! I already knew what bioluminescence and biofluorescence were, but I still learned new things from the book like the fact that platypuses are biofluorescent too! I didn’t know that! The book teaches you about both land and sea creatures that can glow in the dark! If you read this book you’ll learn all about deep sea creatures with their little light…. As well as Japanese fireflies, new world flying squirrels, the New Zealand glowworm, and more! I recommend this book to anyone over 6 who likes animals and wants to learn more about how and why they glow in the dark like a glow stick! I really enjoyed this book! It’s really good! :) Happy exploring! Xx

I would recommend this book. It is a very good book where you learn about bioluminescence and biofluoresence. It interested me because it has my favourite animal on the front and I didn’t know much about the topic.

Judge Tyler Sparrow 26.07.2022
