Young readers are invited to dive into the world of strange fish and other water loving critters in this collection of silly poems and cartoons.

As you turn the pages you'll meet a puffer fish, octopus, killer whale, lots of barnacles and horsehoe crabs, and a sweetlips fish. You'll also find a poem about amoeba and one that explains the difference between a crocodile and alligator.

One of my favorite poems is entitled Jellyfish. 'Jellyfish ... oh, yuck - / A nettlesome bunch of bad luck; / A tentacled thing that carries its sting./ In a mass of gelatinous muck.'

There's also a very short verse on herring. 'Herring fish can travel far, / Here's some pickled in this jar!'

Young children will have fun exploring the secrets of the deep as they read these poems that are meant to elicit a chuckle or two. Have even more fun and share them with friends and family.
