One Lonely Sea Horse
Bea--a lonely sea horse made out of Chioggia beets--is the star of this extraordinary counting book. (We know she's made of beets because the endpapers identify all the produce used in the lovely underwater seascapes--from cantaloupes to enoki mushrooms.) We know Bea is lonely, too, because sea horses just don't get any lonelier than this:
Beneath the ocean, deep and wide,
One lonely, drifting sea horse cried,
"In all the cold and salty sea
I'm all alone--there's only me."
Fortunately, other sea creatures are eager to befriend her. One Lonely Sea Horse is a fabulous tribute to food, figures, photography, and friendship.
