Synopsis

What can you see in the deep blue sea? Dolphins, stingrays, men o' war, and more! In Shimmer & Splash, acclaimed author and artist Jim Arnosky—whose award-winning nature books delight children, parents, and teachers alike—captures the endless variety of spectacular marine species. From the beautiful (starfish, coral reefs) to the scary (sharks, barracudas) to the yucky (jellyfish), these undersea inhabitants will amaze kids…especially in the seven fantastic gatefolds!
