Nominee, Governor General's Literary Awards Children's Literature - Illustration, 2001 Richard Thompson and Maggee Spicer join forces with Kim La Fave in this colourful tour of the seas. The young narrator and his friends, Maggee and Jesse, travel to a myriad of places to look at sea life that is every colour of the rainbow. Children will delight in the pink octopus, the blue manatee, and the orange barracuda, to name but a few. Richard Thompson and Maggee Spicer have created a rhythmic poem (in the same vein as their ealier collaboration, Fishes in the Ocean ) that will encourage the very youngest of new readers. Together with Kim La Fave's bold and playful illustrations, this delightful poem will . . . make a fine book To show what we'll see, When we all go sailing On the rainbow seas.
