From the very first poem, readers are invited to “Dive In”to this slim volume of aquatic verse. Accompanying each rhyme is a short description of the marine creature highlighted in each piece. Leslie Evan’s clever block print illustrations float throughout the text. Poetic forms used, such as couplets, cinquain and double dactyl styles, are explained at the end of the book which also includes related web sites and a glossary.
