Editorial Reviews

A simple yet extremely clever introduction to animals and the way they respond to water. . . . A delight from start to finish." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review"Richly colored, highly textured collages depict a variety of animals in the water.

Notes at the back provide additional information about the animals and their water habits." - Copyright A® 1996 The Horn Book, Inc. All rights reserved. Horn Book, Fanfare "
