For Middle Grade readers. Enjoy a day at the beach as we walk through sand, jump the waves, hear sea birds calling to each other as sea creatures seek food and shelter in a wondrous, hidden ocean biome. This book can stand alone or act as a companion to "The Ocean's Way" which tells the story of eleven year old Holly's learning experience with marine life in Florida. A sample chapter appears after the Glossary. The book contains 37 unrhymed poems ( diamante, tanka, anagram) about the ocean and ocean life. Each poem is accompanied by a beautiful color photograph for visual impact. All facts are well-researched and concise. If the scientific classifications appear unfamiliar, in common terms the topics include coral reefs, sand, sea shells, tides, tsunami, waves, dolphins, orcas, manatees, pilot whales, polar bears, sea lions, seals, sea otters, walruses, whales, albatross, gulls, penguins, sea anemones, sea turtles, horseshoe crabs, rays, sea horses, sharks, starfish, crabs, crayfish, hermit crabs, lobsters, clams, squid, mussels, octopus and snails. The poems are organized alphabetically under the headings beach, marine mammals, marine birds, marine animals-cnidaria, marine reptiles, chelicerata arthropods, carnivorous fish, decapod crustaceans, cephalopod mollusks and mollusks. The Glossary contains definitions, parts of speech and a pronunciation guide. Experience the adventure.

This book is the first detailed study to deal with Victor Hugo's verse in its totality. It shows how each work was composed, how the themes evolved, and how strategic considerations, as well as the events of the author's life, dictated the sequence of his publications. Victor Hugo: A Companionto his Poetry will be of equal value to those who want to follow the stages by which his pre-eminence was established in all categories of poetry, and to those seeking a closer reading of individual works. The book also shows the importance of the European dimension in Hugo's writings.

in its imagined environment ( the cold sea , the indifferent or mocking ... grow
dark " — it is as if the mind is refusing the evidence of its senses ( as it did , in a
way , during the dream ) . ... come back gifre and grædig , “ eager and greedy ”
