More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Opening with "If you were a seahorse, you would enchant all who saw you," the author proceeds to convince readers of the marvelous history, habits, habitat, and variety of the seahorse. Since seahorses don't have tailfins because they evolved into a grasping tail, they don't swim through currents so much as wrap themselves on sea grass and let the current swim by them. Marvelous full-color, close-up photographs, each labeled with the Latin name and common name of a different seahorse, show details of seahorse eyes, cheek gills instead of a mouth for eating, a male seahorse giving birth, and camouflage techniques. George includes a not-to-be-missed endnote in which she mentions things she had to leave out, an address to write to for seahorse conservation information, and a web page to check. As she did for Jellies: The Life of Jellyfish (Millbrook, 2000), George has created a book for readers to marvel at and to hope, along with the author, that sea horses will not be decimated by human damage to their habitats. 2003, Millbrook Press, Ages 6 to 10.
— Susan Hepler, Ph.D.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Opening with "If you were a seahorse, you would enchant all who saw you. One glimpse of you would remind people that there was magic on Earth," George gives youngsters the opportunity to use their imaginations to explore the undersea world of these amazing animals. The author's poetic language presents a general overview of seahorse life. There's not much detail, but the basics are covered (i.e., where seahorses live, what they eat, and how they reproduce). Clear, full-color photos add both visual appeal and extra information as different species are identified. The concepts are simply stated, which makes this a good read-aloud for a young audience, but the approach will probably not meet the needs of most report writers. Browsers and those looking for brief information will find much to appreciate.-Arwen Marshall, Minneapolis Public Library Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
George spins a memorable selection of basic facts about seahorses on a playful current of prose: "If you were a seahorse, you could roll your eyes in two different directions, and not get dizzy. You could see where you were going and where you had come from, all at the same time. Quite a gift." Big, sharp close-ups depict several species (identified with both common and scientific names), each more delectably weird-looking than the last, in natural settings. The author closes this beguiling introduction with additional seahorse lore, plus a lead to more information. A rare encounter with the natural world, equally suited to private research or reading aloud. (Nonfiction. 7-9)

    Poetic, Great Photography, Between 3/4 Stars

    Informative. I was impressed with the photography and the moderate poetic-ness of the writing. It wasn't as wonderful as I had hoped, however, especially given the price. FYI: there is one pro-evolution sentance, for those of you that might be homeschooling and christian. All in all, I am still glad I purchased the book.

    A Must For Every Holiday Gift List!

    With simple and eloquent text, accompanied by astounding photographs, Twig George has brought to life the mysterious world of seahorses. While it undoubtedly was written with the young reader in mind, I was fascinated by the book. The children of my friends and family will be delighted when I stock up and distribute Seahorses this season.
