Each page brings a fresh, up-close painting of a new variety, with the only slightly fudged offering being "I for Imocaris," a crab-like fossil from several million years ago (and be sure to check out the Ninja and Halloween varieties). There's a considerable amount of factual information packed into the relatively brief text passages, and occasional cheeky messages directly from the crabs spice things up. Young readers should be able to readily understand the content, and they'll certainly enjoy looking at the detailed pictures. Whether for group or individual perusal, school or public library, this makes for a handsome and intriguing addition to the abecedary canon.
