Synopsis: From renowned picture book illustrator Jerry Pinkney comes a dramatic and beautifully painted pop-up compendium of sea creatures. From crabs to seahorses to hammerhead sharks to octopi to corals, the animals in this volume literally jump off the page at you. Every spread surprises with a fishy friend coming up for air and multiple pull tabs which allow kids to learn more about their fascinating behavior.

This interactive book captures all the lush beauty of the underwater world in Jerry Pinkney's evocative illustrations. The animals and their ocean home come to life through the paper engineering of John Strejan and Jim Diaz. The simple text adds authoritative information to this richly entertaining experience.

Each interactive spread encourages readers to explore a particular ocean environment and its cast of characters: an anemone rides a hermit crab, which looms from its shell, claws waving; a goosefish wiggles its lure to entice smaller fish into its umbrella-wide mouth; a coral reef brims with camouflaged creatures; a squid speeds through the water like a jet. Hints in the text direct kids to the harder-to-find pop-ups and the interactive features hidden within the layout, which reflect the way certain sea creatures blend into their seafloor seascape. This is one cool book that kids will want to pore over again and again. Come on in, the water’s wonderful!

About the Author: Jerry Pinkney is an artist with more than 75 children's books to his credit. He has won numerous awards and honors including several Caldecott Honor Books, multiple Coretta Scott King Awards, the Drexel Citation for Children's Literature, and the Virginia Hamilton Literary Award. He lives in Philadelphia, PA.
