Critters are focus of new publications

Dave FitzSimmons, Ohio freelance outdoor writer and photographer, has produced a series of Curious Critters texts designed to interest kids and adults in oddities that can be seen nearly everywhere outdoors.

FitzSimmons has previously produced two critter studies of reptiles, insects and animal life. His latest effort, “Curious Critters – Marine”, includes finned fishes, crustaceans and bird life that inhabit seas and freshwaters.

Each entry basically describes, from the persona of the critter, what each does in and around water. Each text can also be obtained in audio-book form, with FitzSimmons doing the narrations.

Curious Critters-Marine,” a Wild Iris publication, will be available April 22. For details on this and the other two critter texts, visit
