This Is a Seahorse

When a child writes a report about a seahorse, the creature himself has a few things to say about the animals he’s compared to. First of all, he is nothing like a land horse. His tail is much more useful than an opossum’s tail. And his snout fits his face perfectly—unlike an anteater’s snout.

Delivering fascinating facts along the way, the seahorse sets the record straight about what makes his species so special.​

  • Federman (This Is a Sea Cow) has penned another creative and thoroughly delightful tale that will be an instant hit with kids and their parents. The digitally collaged art is eye-catching and wonderfully done . . . A definite purchase for all collections; children will roar at the interactions between the seahorse and Cassandra.
