Commotion in the Ocean by Giles Andreae Illustrated by David Wojowycz

"There's a curious commotion
 At the bottom of the ocean.
 I think we ought to go and take a look."

This bright comical picture book tells the story of a variety of sea creature. In simple whimsical verse, poems are written about squeaking dolphins, the huge whale, strong walruses, the strange creatures of the deep and the mama octopus who loves to tickle her children. The verse is fun and engaging while the vibrant illustrations have lots of detail. (Look for the tiny yellow starfish hidden on every page!)  Not a book that will teach anyone about sea creatures, but a fun simple book to enjoy with your child!  This is a favorite of J's (age 4).
