PRLog - Jun. 13, 2012 - Strap on your snorkel and prepare to dive into the aquatic kids’ book of the year! What Sea Creature is This? has just arrived to captivate children from coast to coast and everywhere in-between. Written by celebrated children’s author and former school librarian Nancy Kelly Allen and illustrated in spectacular watercolors by Gloria Brown, this glossy paperback is an amazing plunge into the mysterious and beautiful world of life in the ocean.

Already a big hit with over a dozen major aquariums around the country, What Sea Creature is This? intrigues young readers (ages 4-9) with amazing and realistic illustrations and includes a couple of facts about each of the creatures featured. Open the cover and swim with such beautiful oddities as the Flashlight Fish, which can be found with light pouches under its eyes in white, blue, yellow and green. Turn the page to find the Yellow-Bellied Sea Snake, which ties itself in knots to remove algae and barnacles from its skin.

Top marine authorities are heaping on praise:

“This charming account of wonders and oddities of the ocean world is lighthearted yet true to facts. Please treat your children, grandchildren or other eager, young learners to this book.”
    —Robert A. Knox, Associate Director (emeritus), Scripps Institution of Oceanography

“The illustrations of amazing creatures in this book combine with delightful description to unlock the mystery of what lives in the deep. It's like scuba diving without getting wet!”
    —George Z. Peterson, Monterey Aquarium; Secretary, American Academy of Underwater Sciences

Nancy Kelly Allen is a beloved children’s author, former children’s teacher and school librarian. With a lifetime of experience writing for kids, it’s no wonder that Nancy was chosen to be the author representing Kentucky at the National Book Festival.
