Dancing dolphins, waddling walruses, and lolloping polar bears are among the sea creatures featured in the latest offering from this author/artist partnership. A double page spread is devoted to each animal until the final one, which is something of a letdown and gives the impression that they ran out of animals.
As well as opportunities to find out something about the animals, both from the bright paper collage illustrations and rhythmic text wherein are embedded language lessons, the whole thing, for me anyway is an invitation to move. Children will surely want to emulate those twisting, turning dolphins, gliding whales, swooping, swerving flip-flapping penguins and waggling octopuses.
