This is a winner!
Whale is in advertising and today he’s letting the other sea creatures know of the upcoming Art Contest, which will be judged by Jackson Pollock.
As Octopus prepares his ink and Eel sculpts sandy patterns on the ocean floor, Whale feels saddened by his lack of artistic talent until… he discovers something about himself: When he swishes his tail the bioluminescent phytoplankton shine in patterns.
Soon our sad hero is creating a masterpiece that would have inspired even VanGogh.
Very clever stuff, Reading Level 2.8, Interest level: All.
