Balcombe, Jonathan. What a Fish Knows: The Inner Lives of our Underwater Cousins. New York: Scientific American/Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2016.
Imagine a little fish in a tank hiding out from a curious house cat. Imagine that cat leaning over to lap up some water. Imagine that little fish shooting up to the surface to bite the cat’s tongue! It’s happened! Amazing stories fill this 288-page book recommended for competent readers 13 years old and up. (Besides the stories, there is a lot of scientific information. Younger readers may want to skim over that and hunt for the anecdotes.)
