sea-cowFlash, a creature from outer space, has questions about “some names in the sea [that] are the same as on land.”   With his friend Jack, Flash finds the answers as they explore a school of fish and a school in town, a sea cow and a cow in the field, a clown fish and a clown in the circus, a seahorse and a horse in the hay, a bed of clams and a bed to sleep on, and a star fish and a star in the sky.  With illustrations in contrasting styles alternating between sharply defined graphics and loose watercolors, the reader learns the difference in the meaning of those names.

Ages 4-8.  32 pages.  Recommended.  Amelia Carling- Pelham
