From the Publisher:
From time to time I dream that I'm a manatee,
Undulating underneath the sea.
A little boy dreams of becoming a manatee, and what a dream it is! With his new gigan-atee manatee proportions, he sets off on an underwater adventure with his manatee friends.
"Sophisticated and silly at the same time, Lithgow's verse will keep kids on their toes. Meanwhile, Hoyt's colored pencils, pen, and ink spreads overflow with humorous aquatic activity." 08/15/2003 Publishers Weekly
"Like Lithgow's previous works, this one takes a read-through or two to fully appreciate the rhythm and sometimes sophisticated tone; the CD recording brings it all home in a fine fashion, however, and will soon have many adults and children singing along." 07/21/2003
