The �most published baby photographer in the world� makes a splash
In this charming follow-up to his immensely popular , photographer Tom Arma takes young readers on an amazing journey under the sea. An adorable snorkeling baby, attired in scuba gear and diaper, guides treasure hunters through the ocean. Together, we ask directions from a whale, an octopus, a crab, and many other aquatic creatures. Arma's distinctive costumed babies—each one cuter than the last—make this a treasure hunt like no other. The call-and-response text by noted children's book author Lenny Hort is perfect for parent-child read-alouds. We're Going on a Treasure Hunt is truly a treasure!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Having conquered the jungle in We're Going on Safari, Tom Arma's band of babies now hit the beach in We're Going on a Treasure Hunt by Lenny Hort. As an unseen narrator invites readers to join the treasure hunt, Arma's funny photos feature a baby starfish in an orange five-pointed number, a baby on the half-shell (as an oyster) and even a pink- tentacled baby octopus floating among large bubbles, who point readers to the chest of gold. Arma's photo-editing techniques create seemingly impossible images with a hyperreal look. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

PreS-Gr 1-Featuring babies in sea-animal costumes, this book has a creative blending of modern computer technology and old-fashioned photographic skill, while adding interactive search-and-find games. The text starts with a vibrant orange starfish/baby on the beach, and, on each page, children are given clues as to the identity of the next creature. "Go and ask some shellfish with pinchy little red claws if you want to find the treasure in the sea." Some purists may question the inclusion of a mermaid, but kids won't. They will shout the stanzas out loud, find the snorkeled baby in each photograph, and try to guess the name of the next animal that will lead them to the treasure. The smiling, plushly costumed babies loom in the foreground of the lush, densely colored, ocean scenes. Despite the considerable bulk of the outfits, they look perfectly happy, a clear tribute to the photographer's remarkable skill.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
