About the Author:

Karen Wallace has spent time fishing in the rivers of Ireland. She says she didn‘t see eels very often, but "when I did, I couldn‘t get over how extraordinary they were."
Mike Bostock remembers catching eels as a child. "But reading the text was an education for me," he says. "I had no idea they went through so many changes."

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-Bright, attractive watercolor paintings combine with a prosaic text to create an appealing description of the amazing life cycle of an eel. Each double-page spread is an artful arrangement of oversize text and a large, colorful impressionistic illustration, often embellished with small watercolor insets showing details mentioned in the narrative. Italic-style captions state simple facts about the snakelike creatures. A short, factual introduction and a brief index introduce the nonfiction format to future report writers. An interesting, visually attractive, nonthreatening look at a creature commonly viewed as ugly and menacing.
