Description
One day, a baby seahorse is born, turning and tumbling as he floats through ocean currents alongside his three hundred brothers and sisters.Like a tiny, mythical dragon, the seahorse is a fascinating creature: he changes color to fit in with the surroundings of his spectacular coral reef and sea grass surroundings; his lizard-like eyes can look in two directions at once; and when he has grown, he not the female will give birth to the next batch of whirling seahorses.Jennifer Keats Curtis's evocative language and Chad Wallace's shimmering illustrations tell the story of the seahorse's amazing life beneath the waves."
