This irresistible Eyeball Animation book takes us deep below the sea for a fish-eyed view of the ocean unlike any seen before.

A wild pair of eyeballs built into this high quality hardcover picture book bounce up and down and all around like a dinghy in rough waters. A glossary of the diverse sea life showcased throughout the story makes it a great teaching tool, as well!

William Boniface relays the tale of Max the Minnow in charming and witty verse that is as much of a treat for adults to read as for children to hear. Through his bold and colorful style, Don Sullivan's wildly humorous illustrations bring the underwater world of Max and his friends to vivid life.

U.S. Patent No. 5,941,570; 6.149,201

About the Author:

William Boniface has lent his name to over two dozen children's books, including THE ORDINARY BOY.

Review:

Today many picture books are published which have beautiful illustrations, but the text is weird or written above the level of the youngest readers. Not The Adventures of Max the Minnow given to me by my second grade student, Kyle. He knew I would have the giggles for days to come! What enhances the humorous illustrations are two tightly secured wobbling eyeballs which fit from cover to cover causing everyone to laugh at each turn of the page. This story is about a tiny minnow who yearns to be a big fish: "'Maybe I can puff up, too!"/ Max told his seahorse, Sam./ "If I can't be big naturally,/ I'll EAT until I am.'" Then Max gorges on plankton shakes at Saltfish Malts, pizzas at Pizza Cove, pasta at Noodle Hut, and almost gets eaten himself at Sharky's Dinner, which Max thinks should be spelled "Sharky's Diner." But Max becomes too fat and slow until he learns: "That "Big Fish" aren't just made./ It's what you do with what you've got,/ That helps you make the grade./ And Max has lost the weight he gained,/ As you and I can witness. For he's become the biggest fish,/ in underwater fitness!" Librarians and teachers will appreciate the inclusion of a picture glossary about each species of sea life mentioned in the text. This is the third in the series of eyeball animation books which also includes Mystery in Bugtown and Ten Little Dinosaurs. Their newest title Friends of a Feather will be available this June. For some serious eye-popping fun, I recommend this book for fishermen, scuba divers, their children and everyone else! -- From Independent Publisher
