This book offers close-up views of the amazing variety of the tidal zone's inhabitants and the ongoing drama of their struggles to adapt and survive. Snails, clams, and sea worms populate these pages, alongside crabs that scuttle across the ocean floor. 32 drawings.

From School Library Journal:

Abundant information about plant and animal survival in harsh tidal pool environments is presented in a lively style to interest both landlocked readers and coastal inhabitants. Chapter topics move from general information about tidal pool habitats through specific discussions of miniature creatures--those anchored on the bottom, those constantly in motion, and those who are only part-time residents. Emphasis is placed on leaving living animals in their natural environment. Fascinating facts about the development stages, behavior, and survival tactics of both familiar and less common creatures are included. The text is approachable for intermediate students and expands vocabulary by clearly defining terminology. Some readers may be disappointed to find that the colorful jacket leads to black-and-white illustrations. These illustrations of individual plants and animals have identifying labels and define basic shape and structure. The format is uncluttered with good-sized print.An extensive glossary is available, but there is no pronunciation guide or index. Little indication is given as to which animals exist along a particular coastline. Use this book as a companion to Anita Malnig's Where the Waves Break (Carolrhoda, 1985), which has color photographs that complement the more in-depth information in the Silversteins' book. --Diane Nunn, Richard E.
