Author Bio

Steve Jenkins has written and illustrated many nonfiction picture books for young readers, including the Caldecott Honor-winning What Do You Do with a Tail Like This? His books have been called stunning, eye-popping, inventive, gorgeous, masterful, extraordinary, playful, irresistible, compelling, engaging, accessible, glorious, and informative. He lives in Boulder, Colorado with his wife and frequent collaborator, Robin Page, and their children.

Linda Capus Riley is the author of three nonfiction titles for children and a certified SCUBA diver. She's swum with sharks, giant rays, and sea lions, come face-to-face with an octopus, and would rather be underwater than most other places. She has a Master of Arts in Communications from Temple University, and is an award-winning journalist.

Editorial Reviews

"A simple yet extremely clever introduction to animals and the way they respond to water. . . . A delight from start to finish." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review

"Richly colored, highly textured collages depict a variety of animals in the water. A single line of fluid, gently rhyming text is carefully placed on each double-page spread to describe the animal and its aquatic behavior: ea otters sleep in a cradle of kelp. / Squid swim backwards, jet-propelled. Notes at the back provide additional information about the animals and their water habits." -- Copyright © 1996 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved. Horn Book, Fanfare
