Synopsis: In the Amazon River lives one of the largest freshwater fish on Earth—the arapaima. This huge river hunter can grow up to 10 feet long and weigh 400 pounds. In its watery home, the arapaima is an apex predator. It hunts for fish and birds, but none of its animal neighbors are large enough or powerful enough to catch this giant fish! Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of its primarygrade audience, this colorful, fact-filled book gives readers a chance to learn about the lives of apex predators. The book will also help readers develop their powers of observation and challenge them with activities and critical-thinking questions about the arapaima’s physical characteristics, its everyday life, and its hunting abilities.

From School Library Journal: Gr 3–5—Each featured beast fills an apex predator role in the rain forest ecosystem. Content focuses on predation in the first half, including the subject's diet and hunting methods, with photos that show some of the action of the hunt. Life cycles and habitats are also introduced. Writing is clear and direct, avoiding generalization. Readers learn, for example, that a bull shark is an apex predator in the Amazon, but not in the ocean. While apex predators are defined with examples provided, their impact on rain forest food chains is not explored. Captioned photographs highlight key physical features, while occasional close-ups and insets also support factual details effectively. Other features include a range map, a "science lab" activity, and question boxes that actually promote critical thinking, rather than repetition of facts from within the text. VERDICT Well-rounded species profiles suitable for reports.
