From the Back Cover

Familiar burgess characters Danny Meadow Mouse, Jimmy Skunk, and Reddy Fox explore every nook and cranny of the shoreline and learn first hand about the habits and habitats of spider crabs, sea cucumbers, sand eels, and that strangest of little fishes--the sea horse.
Veteran storyteller and nature lover Thornton W. Burgess provides fascinating information to young readers as he describes coastal areas along the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way he weaves the area's many life forms into an entertaining tale that's also an illustrated guide to the seashore's natural history.
Unabridged Dover (2005) republication of the edition published by Little, Brown, and Company, Boston. 48 illustrations by W. H. Southwick and George Sutton. 288pp. 53/8 x 81/2. Paperbound.
