Summary
A lake turns into an island.A cozy bay into a secluded cape.A gulf with sea turtles transforms into a peninsula surrounded by pirate ships. This unique information book for the very young switches between bodies of water and corresponding land masses with the simple turn of a page. Readers will delight as the story unfolds and will see just how connected the earth and the water really are.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* This inventive and informative book introduces aquatic-related geographic concepts. Each full-page spread has a single term such as cape or archipelago set on a happy scene of diverse groups of people interacting with and enjoying the environment, from recreation to transportation to pirate spotting. And for each one, the concept itself is depicted with an imaginative die-cut that, with the turn of a page, transforms a gulf into a peninsula, or a strait into an isthmus, and so forth, demonstrating how one is often the opposite of the other. There are 10 in total, each of which has, in the back matter, an illustrated definition that elucidates those opposites (A lake is a body of water surrounded by land. An island is a piece of land surrounded by water), and, in a large fold-out map, an example of where one can be found on earth, along with a list of some distinctive examples, such as the lake cluster of Pokhara Valley in Nepal and South Africa's Walker Bay. There are fun details to pore over in each textured picture, which draw on Hale's particular skill with nature scenes, and the pages are sturdy, well designed, and quite charming.--Medlar, Andrew Copyright 2018 Booklist"
