Overview

Ideal for enriching a child's imagination and vocabulary, this compilation of aquatic collective nouns is the perfect gift or learning tool for young ones

A school of whales and a pod of dolphins: these are two of the aquatic group names you may already know. But have you heard of a congregation of crocodiles, or a battery of barracudas? How about a fever of stingrays or a raft of sea otters? Within the pages of this book are a boldly illustrated collection of less popular and sometimes more quirky ones—from a knot of frogs to a run of salmon, and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This husband-and-wife design team returns with another tribute to collective nouns, this one focusing on aquatic creatures. An “array of eels” hangs like neckties from a hanger; for a “school of whales,” a scholarly figure with a graduation cap and glasses has a mustache formed by a whale’s tail (an image that previously appeared in this duo’s A Filth of Starlings); and nine otters are recast as logs to make up a “raft.” As with this team’s earlier books, readers will enjoy puzzling out how the pictures and collective nouns experiment with meaning in both literal and figurative senses. Simultaneously available: A Crackle of Crickets: A Compilation of Insect Collective Nouns. Ages 7�up. (Feb.)
