Hotel Deep

Light Verse from Dark Water

By Kurt Cyrus

Harcourt Children's Books, Hardcover, 9780152167714, 40pp.

Publication Date: April 1, 2005

Take a plunge into the strange, surprising depths of this world inside the sea. In twenty-one wet and witty poems, Kurt Cyrus follows a lone sardine in search of its lost school within the dark halls of a great coral reef.
From a devious stonefish and a slippery sea snake to a blowfish with attitude and a line of goose-stepping lobsters, here is a realm awash with the weird and the wondrous, the comical and the spooky. No matter how long your stay, this is one hotel you won't want to leave
"Includes a visual "key" that leads readers to specific fish within the illustrations."
