Description

In verse that sings with lively cadences and rollicking rhymes, award-winning author-illustrator Ruth Heller has captured the spirit and antics of twelve of the Galapagos Islands' most unusual and fascinating creatures. This lavishly illustrated gallery showcases the giant tortoises for which the islands were named, as well as sea lions, both land and marine iguanas, Sally Lightfoot crabs, and several kinds of sea birds, including the rare and exotic blue-footed boobies. While the poems and pictures are plenty of fun, they also convey a wealth of information about these creatures' habits and habitats, along with a lively sense of their presence. This one-of-a-kind volume is sure to enchant wildlife lovers of all ages. "The fluent play with words, humorous commentary, and fine pictures offer pleasing fare for reading aloud . . . ." --School Library Journal
