"Children and adults of various ages, races, and physical abilities tour a public aquarium to look at many of the world's marine creatures. The language is almost lyrical… and the story is alive with color and action.'' — School Library Journal
"A versatile author at her best.… In the large, cheerful illustrations, action-filled spreads are varied with portrait vignettes, and underwater scenes with the visitors' enthusiastic responses.' — Kirkus
