The Horn Book Guide

“Harris’s rhythmic, loosely rhyming text describes six creatures moving through the sea, until a shark shows up and scares them away. More important than the slight story line, though, are the verbal and pictorial patterns throughout: in each two-page cartoon illustration, every element from the decorative frame to the background characters shares the same pattern (AB, ABB, etc.). An endnote provides further explanation.”

“A clear and effective teaching tool.”

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“Preschool educators may call this math readiness or sequencing if they will; kids will simply regard it as a juicy puzzle book and snap up the bait.”
