Ocean Soup: Tide-Pool Poems

Ocean Soup: Tide-Pool Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stephen R. Swinburne is a former park ranger and the author of several nonfiction books for children, including WINGS OF LIGHT: THE MIGRATION OF THE YELLOW BUTTERFLY. Steve lives in South Londonderry, Vermont.

Review:

"Appearing as googly-eyed cartoons, sea creatures discuss life in the tide pools in these lighthearted rhymes. Hairy Doris, a sea slug, is proud of her unusual appearance ('I'm really rather lucky that/ I have no pesky shell./ Behold my lovely body — / I'm a stunning tide-pool belle!') and in a poem called 'Regenerate,' a starfish is casual about losing an appendage: 'A crab comes — SNIP! — there goes my arm./ Rude, yes, but I'm not alarmed.' Brief paragraphs provide factual tidbits, though the focus is definitely on fun. Ages 6 — 9." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
