About the Author

Giles Andreae is an artist, illustrator, writer, and poet. He often writes under the names of "Purple Ronnie", and "Edward Monkton", and is the author of the best-selling titles Rumble in the Jungle and Commotion in the Ocean, along with many other books for children.


PreS-Gr 2-A mediocre collection of rhymes featuring different ocean animals. "The crab likes walking sideways/And I think the reason why,/Is to make himself look sneaky/And pretend that he's a spy." Although the poems are short, the vocabulary will occasionally be difficult for beginning readers. The opening and closing poems state that the book explores animals that live "beneath the sea," and yet polar bears and penguins are included. The brightly colored cartoon art is playful, but uninspired. Stick with Douglas Florian's In the Swim (Harcourt, 1997) for more creative writing and clever watercolor illustrations.-Robin L. Gibson, Muskingum County Library System, Zanesville, OH
