For fans of quirky and informative picture books such as Pink Is for Blobfish and Give Bees a Chance comes a delightful story about a sea slug who is way more than meets the eye.
Shh, we are about to observe the one-inch-long sea bunny as it journeys sloooooowly across the ocean floor! Along the way, we'll learn some interesting facts: how it crawls upside-down using slime, how it breathes through its . . . um . . . fluffy-looking backside, and why predators would be in for an unsavory surprise if they ever got ahold of it. Young readers will float away with loads of new knowledge about this fascinating sea slug species, and they'll be reminded to never judge a book by its cover--or a sea slug by its slime.
About the Author
Peter Raymundo was twenty-one years old when he went to work for Walt Disney Studios as part of their Feature Animation Division. There he drew (and drew and drew) for films such as Tarzan, Lilo & Stitch, and Mulan. Besides The Mysterious Sea Bunny, Pete is also the author-illustrator of I Am Not a Fish! and the Third Grade Mermaid chapter book series. Pete draws inspiration from the ocean and says it gives him "an endless backdrop for fun and meaningful stories." He and his family live in Celebration, Florida.
