Pic Fic: The Sea Hunt by Anne Burger

August: Young Readers

Follow two children out on their boat as they explore the ocean, competing to find the “weirdest” sea creature.  Detailed observations describe each find and are accompanied by water-colored line drawings, which provide an impression of a magical day. – Robin

What’s the weirdest sea creature you’ve ever seen?

Did it have fins, or tentacles, or a shell?

Did it wriggle, or skitter, or stay still as a rock?

Did it sting, or cling, or hide?

Join young explorers Jack and Jenny as they hunt for strangeness in the Chesapeake Bay. You’ll discover just how weird, wild, and wonderful a saltwater world can be!
