About the Author

Susan Stockdale began her art career as a textile designer for the apparel industry, providing her an opportunity to express her love of pattern and color. Today, pattern and color remain central to her work as the author and illustrator of critically acclaimed picture books that celebrate nature. Her books have won a variety of awards including the ALSC Notable Children's Book, NCTE Notable Children's Books in the Language Arts, NSTA Outstanding Science Trade Books for Students K-12, and the Bank Street College of Education Best Children's Books of the Year. Susan lives in Maryland with her husband and is a popular speaker at schools and conferences.


"Stockdale uses simple rhymes and clear, colorful acrylic artwork to introduce the fascinating underwater world of fishes."--School Library Journal

"Youngsters will tap their toes to the rhythm as they are simultaneously presented with a great variety of fish and tickled by the unexpected aspects and behavioral characteristics of each type. . . Bold, graphic illustrations rendered in colorful acrylic portray each fish realistically. . . An excellent teaching tool and an appealing introduction to the wide world of fish."--Kirkus Reviews

"An exciting way to prepare kids for a visit to the aquarium."--Booklist

"Every turn of the page reveals vivid paintings of exotic as well as common underwater creatures to delight all ages. If the paintings are the feast, Stockdale's words are the dessert. And she selects them carefully."--The Washington Post
