This is another informative book in the series of Research Guides (I see they are now called 'Fact Trackers'), companion books to the Magic Tree House stories. This book is the companion book to Dark Day in the Deep Sea. It's been almost three years since we read that book, but we remembered the crazy sea creatures that Jack and Annie met during that adventure.

This book describes sea life on various levels, including the creatures in the deepest parts of the ocean. It's not as entertaining, per

Did you know that giant squids have beaks like parrots? Or that some marine creatures in the deep ocean can make their own light with bioluminescence? Jack and Annie have researched all about sea monsters in this nonfiction companion to the Magic Tree House book Dark Day in the Deep Sea.

There are also scientific mysteries yet to ...more

An accessible introduction to the various creatures living in the deep sea, this book highlights the creatures that live in the deep sea and the ancient creatures that once lived in the deep sea. This is a great choice for recreational nonfiction reading and it includes many tips about doing further research.

Sea Monsters shares information about all the sea monsters that inhabit the deep dark parts of the sea. I used this book as an accompaniment to another Mary Pope Osborne that my lower readers read in book club. Actually, they stumbled on this book in our classroom library and became really excited to read it.
Loving all the good information on the animals at the bottom of the sea and ocean.
I honsestly think it should deserve four, even though I put it for five. It is just that it is a good book, but also that it is pretty scary thinking about all those other sea creatures that are kind of scary. It still was a good book. At least I learned about different kinds of creatures that people think they are monsters, but they really are not.I really liked it so much that I still gave it five stars.
squids when they see a predator they shoot ink out of their butts to escape.
I like the book becaes it tout me thing's a about the ocen that I nerver new. I like the part whaer it tels a about the squied that is biger then the gint squied. It olso takes about the sieting of sae mouster I really injoyed that part.

In this rsrch gdes it toks all a bout the stras crsas that live depe in the sea and a bout how they find ther food. And a bout a loot of talse of siting of sea monsters.

This fun book contains a lot of facts about sea creatures. Most pages contain a black and white picture to help kids imagine the "monsters" described on the pages.
This book was about deep sea monsters. I like how it had a chapter on prehistoric seas and the fish in it. The chapter on supposed sea monsters was also good.
Mrs. Kromminga read it to me does that even count LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):)

Read with my 7 year old son who loves all things informational.
