illustrated by Polly Whimp
The story is about two stingrays that glide along one day, one top of the other, and pick up hitchikers along the way. It is a picture book for children of about 4 – 6 years old.
The pictures really make the book, a combination of colour and monotone, illustrating the variety of under-the-sea characters that appear in the book. They give the sea creatures character and personality, and reflect the action in the story. All the pictures are laid out well with the text, and the book is nicely produced.
The story introduces a number of characters that you may find in the sea – a good zoology lesson (I learned what butterfish look like). The story floats along like the stingray, and is a happy tale about sea creatures helping each other along.
