Elliott and Meade's newest collaboration is a playful exploration of life in the sea... The poems are tailor-made for reading aloud, with vocabulary sophisticated enough to challenge emerging readers while also engaging them inthe fun of wordplay... A magnificent merger of words and images. It will not only appeal to poetry fans, but to all those children who marvel over the mysteries of the deep.
—Booklist (starred review)
Meade’s trademark woodblock prints and watercolors are intricate, action-filled, and artfully designed, while Elliott’s brief poems are a linguistic treat... An eye-catching introduction to the beauty of the creatures that live "in the briny deep."

The Puffer Fish
she's a fish;
she's a balloon.
Or how about the lovely "The Sea Horse" poem! Picture, poem, and a fact. Learning with enjoyment. That is what a good children's books is all about.
