Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Stunning pictures and engaging words. . . . An accomplished entrée

to early science topics." — Booklist (starred review)

Dive into the warm ocean and swim around amid the coral and waving sea grass. Do you see an eye like a small black bead peering out at you? Linger for a while and discover the secrets of the sea horse - one of the shyest fish in the sea. With a head like a horse, a tail like a monkey, and a pouch like a kangaroo, the sea horse acts like a chameleon, changing color to ward off danger or to show that he and his mate are a lifelong pair. Watch their fascinating mating dance, as the two of them twine their tails together and twirl, before she places her eggs in his pouch to be born. Could there be a more intriguing creature of the sea?

Synopsis:

Combining science and storytelling, this title reveals how big and wonderful life under the sea is. Stunning pictures and engaging words . . . An accomplished entre to early science topics.--"Booklist," starred review. Full color.

About the Author

CHRIS BUTTERWORTH is the author of more than seventy nonfiction books for children on such diverse subjects as influenza, Antarctic exploration, and Ancient Egypt. "A sea horse looks as magical as a mermaid," she says, "but sea horses really exist. We need to know as much as we can about them, so we can protect them."

JOHN LAWRENCE says, "Sea horses are really exciting to draw, and I have tried to imagine how it must be to live under the water like them." John Lawrence is both the author and illustrator of THIS LITTLE CHICK, named a NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW Best Illustrated Children's Book of the year.
