Review quote

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 (c) 1996 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved. Horn Book, Fanfare
