Review:

"Well crafted and accessible to young readers, but clever enough to hold the interest of older children. . . . Quality poems and attractive graphic design make this title a solid addition to most collections." --"School Library Journal" "Careful word choice, interesting imagery and attention to rhyme and rhythm, as well as the requirements of different poetic forms, distinguish this collection. . . . The poetry will surprise and delight young readers, perhaps prompting some writing of their own." --"Kirkus Reviews" "The wordplay will grab readers ('an anemone's enemies are you and me'), and so will the exquisite images in both words and pictures. . . . Brief notes at the back fill in the fascinating biology of each creature. A book to use across the curriculum as well as for personal pleasure." --"Booklist"

Synopsis:

Graceful use of traditional poetic forms like haiku and tanka provides inspiration for young readers to create their own writing. Is a crab just an underwater toe-pincher?

Full-colour photographs capture the animals in question, and a "Looking Deeper" section offers exciting facts that keep children reading.
