ABOUT THE BOOK

“With its bright, colored-marker cartoons and dialogue bubbles, this presentation is filled with exuberance… Frasier's offering, with its snappy text, jazzy pictures, and upbeat tone, may inspire children to produce plays about their own subjects of study.”

School Library Journal,

Illustration from The Incredible Water Show

“Now listen to this--our water is OLD! It's so old that the water you sip at supper could be the very same water that giant dinosaurs lapped up from the clear lakes of long ago.”

“Daddy! Look! It's rainbowing!”
