When Fish Got Feet, Sharks Got Teeth, and Bugs Began to Swarm

When Fish Got Feet, Sharks Got Teeth, and Bugs Began to Swarm: A Cartoon Prehistory of Life Long Before DinosaursBy Hannah Bonner
Paperback : 48 Pages
September 8, 2009

Chronologically the first of two books by Bonner, When Fish Got Feet... explores the rise of fish in the Silurian and Devonian periods with wonderful comics, cartoons and illustrations. She takes difficult material, such as the rise and fall of the very fish classes (Sharks! Acanthodians! Placoderms! Bony Fish!) and makes it accessible to a younger audience. Even as an adult I really enjoyed this book and it gave me some wonderful ideas on future things to learn about!

  1. What a great book for little kids that love the ocean. Great way to teach them a little more about aquatic life.
