About the Author
Britta Teckentrup is a fine artist who has written and illustrated many beloved books for children, including Big Smelly Bear. Born in Hamburg, Germany, she later studied at Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. She lives in Berlin with her husband, her son, and their cat.
Here's a colorful, factoid-filled offering about many kinds of fish...this will be welcome in classroom libraries. Nothing fishy about it: Enthusiasts can dive right in.
There’s a literary sweet spot for kids who delight in sea life, in amassing sharable details, and in immersive (pun fully intended) experiences, and Teckentrup hits that mark with a lushly illustrated picture book made for the oxymoronic serious browser...This is a great choice for kids heading off to lake, river, ocean, or aquarium adventures, or those just itching to trade their jeans for waders or a wetsuit.
