Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A New York Times best-selling author and a Caldecott Honor-winning illustrator explore life in the ocean with clever poems and bold, expressive woodcuts.

The briny deep is home to an enormous variety of fascinating creatures, from the dainty sea horse to the fearsome shark, from the spiny sea urchin to the majestic blue whale. In striking woodcut illustrations, diverse creatures glide through blue and green waters, while succinct, witty poetry examines their behavior and interactions. In this companion volume to On the Farm and In the Wild, David Elliott and Holly Meade explore the depths of the ocean in a collection of poems sure to thrill budding oceanographers and landlubbers alike.

Review:

"In this aquatic companion to In the Wild and On the Farm, Meade's trademark woodblock prints and watercolors are intricate, action-filled, and artfully designed, while Elliott's brief poems are a linguistic treat, filled with dramatic metaphors that also convey information about the species described. The octopus is an 'eight-armed apparition' that can vanish 'in a cloud of ink./ No ghost, but a magician,' and a shark sports a 'brutal grin' that reveals 'the terror/ of the dark within.' While Meade's color schemes are not always realistic, they are artistically appealing and, like the jacket artwork, sometimes stunning. An eye-catching introduction to the beauty of the creatures that live 'in the briny deep.' Ages 3 — 5." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
