"Witty poems let us know what's on the menu for some unusual undersea creatures.

The ocean covers two-thirds of our planet. It is Earth's largest ecosystem, full of organisms that make a living in wildly different and even extreme environments.

This clever collection of poems for kids describes the devious and sometimes surprising methods ocean denizens use to forage for food, capture prey, trick predators, and protect their young. The poems bobble and swim effortlessly from page to page, leading us from the snail-shell home of the jeweled anemone crab to a raft of violet snails hanging upside down in their bubble houses. At the Sea Floor Café includes science notes with details about each animal's behavior, a glossary, and an appendix explaining the types of poem that appear on each spread. Striking linoleum prints round out this title, which can be used across the curriculum."
