Dive in--to award-winning, funny science poetry about a remarkable array of sea creatures! AT THE SEA FLOOR CAFE: ODD OCEAN CRITTER POEMS is a creative nonfiction companion to elementary and middle school ocean studies.
Let s visit a habitat shallow and deep,
and boiling hot, where acids seep,
and frigid and pressured and mountainy-steep,
Come explore the sea!

Examine odd critters, enormous and tiny,
sunlit reef toasty and arctic ice briny,
jelly-ish, delicate, venomy, spiny,
They all live in the sea!

What sea creature literally spills its guts when disturbed?
Why do bottlenose dolphins wear sponges on their heads?

Dive in to find the answers to these questions and along the way discover some of the incredible ways ocean creatures forage for food, capture prey, trick predators, and protect their young in this collection of witty poems and astonishing facts.

A glossary of scientific terms, notes on the poetic forms used, and resources for more information about ocean creatures are included at the back of the book. Stunning block prints by Leslie Evans enhance and enliven the colorful underwater tour.

About the Author:

Review:

Dexterous formal verse about sea creatures pairs
with pleasingly abstract block prints in this informative,
fun collection...Sidebars further educate readers...while appended notes
offer a crash course on poetic form. Beguiling lines...should spark readers' interest in poetry and
marine biology alike.  Publishers Weekly

This collection...begins with an invitation to explore. The first few lines...read: "Let's visit a habitat shallow and deep/And boiling hot, where acids seep" The fact that parts of the ocean are boiling hot is just the first of many surprises...The attractive design features appealing colors and block-print illustrations.SLJ

From snapping shrimp with bubble-shooting claws to the Osedax worm that digests whalebones on the ocean floor, intriguing and unusual sea creatures are introduced in this collection of 18 engaging poems written in a variety of forms. Kirkus
