Synopsis: Engaging text highlights the life cycle of cuttlefish, from birth through adulthood. This book’s easy-to-read text and full-color photographs bring this animal’s world to life, introducing readers to the cuttlefish’s diet, habitat, and enemies and threats. Cuttlefish size, body description, and family are also discussed. A diagram helps readers identify body parts, from its mantle to its siphon. Fast Facts are great for reports, while Fascinating Facts expand readers’ knowledge of cuttlefish. Bold glossary words and an index enhance reader comprehension.
