"Well crafted and accessible to young readers, but clever enough to
hold the interest of older children. . . . Quality poems and
attractive graphic design make this title a solid addition to most
collections." --"School Library Journal"
"Careful word choice, interesting imagery and attention to rhyme and rhythm, as well as the requirements of different poetic forms, distinguish this collection. . . . The poetry will surprise and delight young readers, perhaps prompting some writing of their own." --"Kirkus Reviews"
"The wordplay will grab readers ('an anemone's enemies are you and me'), and so will the exquisite images in both words and pictures. . . . Brief notes at the back fill in the fascinating biology of each creature. A book to use across the curriculum as well as for personal pleasure." --"Booklist"
