Product Description

What a good father Mr. Seahorse is! And he's not the only one, as readers will discover in Eric Carle's humorous in informative story and radiantly colorful pictures.

As he floats through the sea, Mr. Seahorse finds several other kinds of fish fathers caring for their eggs and babies in the most surprising ways. Mr. Tilapia, for instance, keeps his eggs safe in his mouth until they hatch, while Mr. Kurtus sticks his on top of his head. Sharp-eyed viewers who turn the acetate overlay pages will also smile to see Mr. Seahorse pass right by a scary lionfish and other camouflaged creatures.

In this appealing, fact-based story and beautiful collage illustrations, Eric Carle introduces a little-know and fascinating facet of natural history. Young readers will also find emotional reassurance in his account of Mr. Seahorse's fatherly devotion. Recommended for ages 2 to 8.

Publisher's Description

When Mrs. Seahorse lays her eggs, she does it on Mr. Seahorse's belly! She knows he will take good care of them. While he swims waiting for the eggs to hatch, he meets some other underwater fathers caring for their babies: Mr. Tilapia, who carries his babies in his mouth; Mr. Kurtus, who keeps his on his head; and Mr. Catfish, who is baby-sitting his young hatchlings.

Eric Carle has done it again, with astonishingly beautiful collage illustrations and a story that introduces the very young to the wonders of aquatic life . . . and some very special daddies. A "hide and seek" feature with acetate overlays adds a colorful surprise.
