Description

Children will delight in the playful, witty language of twenty-one lively poems while they learn about their ocean and freshwater friends. From toothy piranhas and regal rays to itty-bitty tetras and somersaulting salmon, here is an aquarium full of fun for readers--and swimmers--of all ages. "This one, like the rainbow trout on the penultimate page, is definitely 'Divine!/Delish!'"--School Library Journal
