From the Publisher:
Eric Carle has done it again, with astonishingly beautiful collage illustrations and a story that introduces the very young to the wonders of aquatic life...and some very special daddies. A "hide and seek" feature with acetate overlays adds a colorful surprise.
Like all male seahorses, Father Seahorse carries his wife's eggs in his pouch until they are ready to be born. As he awaits the arrival of his children, Father Seahorse travels the ocean, and along the way he meets other male sea creatures who also care for their soon-to-be born, or just born, babies. Colorful tissue-paper collage illustrations, some featuring acetate lift-the-flaps, accompany the text.
"In his elegant painted tissue-paper collages, Carle innovatively balances pastel hues with shocks of brilliant color, creating an appealing seascape that succeeds swimmingly." 03/15/2004 Kirkus Reviews
"The simple, thoughtfully told story includes repetitive phrases and a predictable structure with an emotionally satisfying ending as Mr. Seahorse sends his babies out into the watery world." 04/15/2004
