In graceful verse that matches the rhythm of an eel’s movement, THINK OF AN EEL relates the little-known lifestyle of a most intriguing fish. Children follow an eel from the day he is born, deep in the Sargasso Sea, to his years spent in the ocean, then join him on a trip up a freshwater river and return with him back to the sea, where he has his offspring. Fluid watercolor illustrations depict the sea and river setting in a story as captivating as it is true.
