Review quote

Franco and Wertz follow A Curious Collection of Cats and A Dazzling Display of Dogs with another entertaining grouping of concrete poems, this time focusing on undersea life. Most of the poems highlight a single animal: 'Fairy-tale creature, / ancient traveler, / tiny dragon, / underwater question./ What tales/ do you have/ to tell us?' reads a poem about a seahorse. On another spread, animals occupy a pie chart to create a 'Reef Food Chain': 'The shrimp at the reef nibble algae all day./ A shrimp is what octopi munch./ An eel finds an octopus tasty and fun/ and makes it her mid-morning brunch.' Rendered in vibrant blues and oranges, Wertz's bold, graphic compositions playfully call to mind posters one might see at a seaside festival.--Publishers Weekly
