Freaky, Funky Fish Written by Debra Kempf Shumaker Illustrated by Claire Powell

My kid wants to be a marine scientist and also loves goofy, fantastical creatures. This book—filled with amazing scientific illustrations that are tweaked just enough to make them hilarious—might be the most perfect combination of things to inspire her. The rhyming, playful text expertly supports the illustrations with fun facts about these strange sea animals. It’s a wonderful menagerie of funky aquatic creatures for the curious kid and future marine scientist. — Edward
