★ "Onomatopoeic text and clear images together convey the phenomenon of the tide pool clearly to even landlocked readers."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

★ "Using lyrical language that appeals to the senses, Fleming introduces these Pacific Coast intertidal-zone features. . . . Seattle-based illustrator Hevron's artwork, rendered in acrylic paint and pencil, employs a colorful palette to depict this dynamic ecosystem. . . . A perfect introduction to these amazing rock pools, appropriate for primary science lessons and curious beach-goers alike."--Booklist, Starred Review

"Fleming makes great use of action verbs, engaging descriptions, and just the right amount of repetition to draw readers into the tide pool and hold their interest. The dynamic text placement helps reinforce the movement of the ocean, while Hevron's illustrations give life to the words and with every graceful overlay of line and wash, effectively depict the creatures and the ocean itself."--School Library Journal

"Informative and appealing. . . . Fleming's expertly paced text rolls much like the 'restless' wave on the shore. . . . Hevron's textured illustrations invite close inspection. . . ."--The Horn Book
