From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 - As an unseen narrator follows a quickly moving seahorse, rhyming verses describe the scenery and creatures encountered along the way: "He swam past reefs of coral, with colors flower bright./He swam past flickering fishes, then disappeared from sight." The story concludes with the discovery of an entire family of seahorses, shown in many sizes, gracefully posed inside a cave. Beaton's beautiful collages, made from antique fabric, felt, and assorted bric-a-brac, support the text well. The coral is bright and colorful, and the fish flicker with sequins. Children will enjoy searching for the seahorse hidden on each spread, and the variety of patterns and hues gives them practice in visual discrimination. The book ends with a brief description of coral reefs, an illustrated guide to 20 different creatures highlighted in the artwork, and a fact page about seahorses. With large, vivid pictures that make it suitable for reading alone or aloud, this book presents a colorful first look at coral reefs. - Deborah Rothaug, Pasadena Elementary School, Plainview, NY

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. The involving quest and appealing fabric collages make this rhyming hide-and-seek tale great for reading together or enjoying alone. A fish excitedly spots a seahorse, but can't keep up with the swift-moving creature. It searches the reef, swimming past stingrays, sharks, crabs, starfish, and a mermaid--until it finds a secret surprise. Beaton's clever collages, decorated with buttons for eyes, thread for gills, and lace, rickrack, and fabric fringe, encourage careful looks, and observant kids will be able to find the seahorse hidden in each double-page spread. Children unfamiliar with coral reefs as well as those whose interest was piqued by Finding Nemo will learn some fascinating facts about the underwater environment and the creatures that live there in seven nicely illustrated pages that follow the story.
