Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A young sea diver encounters numerous sea creatures while hunting for treasure. But not every undersea creature is friendly, as the explorer finds out when he's discovered by a shark. Fortunately, the young diver is safe in his own bathtub. Full color.

Review:

"As he hunts for treasure in what is ostensibly the titular locale, the narrator of this familiar-seeming book, a wide-eyed redhead, meets a world of aquatic friends. 'Way down deep in the deep blue sea,/ I spy an octopus waving at me,' writes Peck (The Giant Carrot), as the boy does an arabesque on one of the creature's undulating appendages. 'Hello, octopus./ Gimme eight, octopus./ See you later, octopus.' In each bottom-right corner, the words 'Swim away' beckon readers to turn the page for another undersea encounter. Finally, the boy spots the golden trove of pirate's booty; unfortunately, a shark with a toothy grin guards it. It's time to make a quick exit — after politely bidding goodbye to his pals, of course — and surface to... the bathroom, where Mom awaits with a fluffy towel, and a final illustration reveals the true identity of the sea creatures (tub toys). Petrone (Ducks in Muck) renders the undersea world in bright, saturated colors and strong, rounded shapes, often giving the boy the exaggeratedly wide face of a Dan Yaccarino character. Given the deliberately repetitive text and the absence of tension, even in the 'scary' parts, this book seems best for youngest picture-book fans. Ages 3-6."
