Six animals demonstrate their preferred methods of locomotion with help from rectangular flaps that lift up or to the side. “Hi, fish, hiding behind the seaweed,” reads a typical line. “How do you move?” “I swim!” shouts the orange fish, bursting out from behind the thickly painted kelp when the flap is lifted. Bright colors, cheerful characterizations, and the animals’ punchy responses should win this book fans. Simultaneously available: Surprise! Up to age 2. (July)
