Wow! Ocean!

Robert Neubecker. Disney-Hyperion, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-1-4231-3113-7

Following previous adventures in the city, at school, and across the U.S., adventure-loving Izzy visits a beach with her family. Izzy's exclamations appear in colorful, chalky font in the borders ("Wow! Beach!"), as she and her sister peer at a treasure trove of shells and tide pool species; plunge underwater to swim and scuba dive among rays, whales, and sharks (all labeled for readers); and have a tea party on the ocean floor next to a sunken pirate ship. Foldout spreads, an abundance of whimsical details, and bold artwork that lives up to Izzy's repeated "wows" make this a rewarding mix of fact and fancy. Ages 3%E2%80%937. (May)
