Bill Peet is one of my favorite authors, illustrators.
He seemed to know just how to engaged children and adults
in the silly, sweet stories he wrote.
Although this story is not in rhyme, it is just as charming.
Cyrus is a happy, gentle sea serpent who desires more excitement
in his life when a shark over hears him and begins to sarcastically
tease Cyrus to become a bully.
Of course, Cyrus is not the bully type,
but the adventures continue until he is completely exhausted
and taking a break by the end of the story.
Fun for all!
