Author(s): Terry Webb Harshman
Cow in the sea. Cow in the field. Does a sea cow say "Moo", and eat grass for its meal?"Does a Sea Cow Say "Moo?"" - Oh, that can't be true! It chirps and it clicks and it whistles instead, and grazes on sea grass in shallow sea beds. When an alien lands on earth he is very befuddled by the names of the bizarre creatures he finds in the sea, and his imagination starts to run wild with all the possibilities! A little boy soon explains what the creatures really are with some very funny fish facts, too.
This book is such fun to read aloud and ideal for introducing young readers to the weird and wonderful world of the deep. An extra spread at the back of the book can be found with real descriptions of all the creatures in the story. The contemporary and fun illustration and design combined with the entertaining, rhyming and informative text ensure that this is a book that really stands out and is great value.
