Product Description

What kinds of animals live in the ocean? Find out with this book of under-the-sea poems! Colorful illustrations playfully complement the fun rhymes that range from cute-"I love my spines, I really do / if you were spiny, wouldn't you?" to more extreme "I'll nibble on your babies. I'll eat you when full-grown. / I'm a low-down dirty lobster, bully of the tide. / You'd better keep your head down. You'd better run and hide". Short paragraphs on each page provide facts about each animal. 32 pages with glossary, softcover. Ages 9-12.

Publisher's Description

Dive in for a taste of tide pool soup!

When the tide goes out, a briny soup is trapped among the rocks. Playful poems introduce readers to ten salty tide-pool creatures--from a self-satisfied anemone that brags about its home to barnacles that perform a rap about their feeding technique. The poems are brought to life by Mary Peterson's lighthearted illustrations.

A secondary layer of factual text introduces children to the creatures that inhabit North American tide pools.
