As she did in Living Sunlight and My Light, Bang creates a character out of the sun, this time focusing on its role in the ocean’s ecosystems: “My light-energy,/ first caught by phytoplankton,/ flows through/ the ocean’s chains of life.” Bang creates dimension and visual drama with her use of gold, blues, and black, forming an ethereal habitat for phytoplankton, jellyfish, and bioluminescent creatures. The sense of movement underscores the message about energy transfer between plants and animals. Ages 4–8. (May)
