I decided to narrow down this week’s prompt to aquatic animals.
They don’t seem to be featured in titles and book covers as often as cats or dogs are, so I thought this would provide an interesting spin to the topic.
I also love seeing how aquatic animals interact with their environments. Whether you’re looking at a goldfish, a shark, or something in-between them in size, they’re all fascinating if you ask me!
Oh, and I’m still having trouble leaving comments on Blogger sites. Here’s hoping it will work better today.
1. Capyboppy by Bill Peet
2. Trilobite! Eyewitness to Evolution by Richard Fortey
3. Liō: Happiness is a Squishy Cephalopod by Mark Tatulli

6. Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes by Thomas Cathcart
7. Turtle Tears: A Play in Two Acts by J. Suthern Hicks

9. So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, #4) by Douglas Adams

I really like your spin on the topic. Especially the trilobite cover!
This is an excellent narrowing of the subject, I think. And such a lovely variety of good books.
Thanks, Deb. 🙂
Like your spin on this topic.
Thank you. 🙂
I love Capyboppy! My son is fascinated with the capybara. Excellent take on the topic. Happy Tuesday!
Oh, yah! Glad to hear it. And thanks. Happy Tuesday to you as well.
Fabulous love the cover of Capybobby!
Thank you! Yeah, that was a fun one for sure.
I love these! Great theme — and I wish I’d had a book about a capybara when my kids were little!
Thank you. Yeah, I had the same thought. What a cool picture book that must be for kids today.
Plato and the Platypus was on my list, but I decided to see if I could find just fiction titles. All my science books would make it too easy otheriwse. How was Trilobyte? I think I used to have that but let it go or lost it.
I haven’t actually read Trilobyte yet! I want to, though.
Sticking to fiction titles would make this trickier for sure.
And I literally just left a comment on your blog. 🙂
Aquatic animals. I love it! Such fun choices.
Excellent topic. I like watching those aquarium / coral reef videos on Youtube sometimes lol. so relaxing. Capyboppy is cute, and I like One Fish. Trilobites always fascinated me as a kid. And So Long and Thanks For All The Fish is a fun one as well. I’ve seen another cover for it that has dolphins and I love that cover.
Thank you, Greg! yeah, those videos are so much fun.
That alternate cover for So Long and Thanks for All the Fish sounds amazing.
Great choices! I think I featured two or three aquatic animals on my list today but you’re so right that they don’t get featured as often compared to dogs & cats. Cute titles 😍
Yay for the Douglas Adams rep! But also, capybaras are one of my favorite animals. They’re such sweet critters.
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
They sure are! It’s cool that they’re one of your favourites.
Oh my gosh, I remember reading those Animal Ark books as a kid!
That’s so cool!
Great topic this week. Here is my post-https://paigesofnovels.com/2023/04/11/top-ten-tuesday-books-with-animals/.
Way to make it more challenging! Great list.
A great list. I used to love the Animal Ark books!
Have a great week!

Thank you. I don’t know if I read those books as a kid or not.
Love your twist on this prompt! The Dr Seuss seems so obvious now I’ve seen it.
Thank you. Yeah, he was an easy pick for me.
Ooh, great list! I love the spin you put on the topic.
My TTT: https://bookwyrmknits.com/2023/04/11/top-ten-tuesday-animals-on-the-cover/
ahhh the Capyboppy,so cute, love the ideaof aquatic animals.
They’re such cute animals!
Aww, great picks! I agree that cats/dogs are the most common, so kudos for finding all of these!
Thank you very much!
Oh my gosh, the Animal Ark books! I was absolutely obsessed with those as a kid, I read so many, though I’m not sure if I read the one on your list, there were a lot and I know I didn’t read them all! Lucy Daniels (whichever ghostwriter it was using that name at the time, there were a whole team of them) did do a whole series on dolphins though, called Dolphin Diaries which I really loved as a kid.
That’s awesome. 🙂
Love your spin on the topic! And love the title for Plato and a Platypus walk into a bar 🙂
Thank you! I appreciate that.
Clever twist Lydia! Remarkably Bright Creatures and Salmon Fishing in the Yemen could have worked here as well! Or even A Fish called Wanda!
Thanks for visiting us earlier!
Yes, they sure could have! And you’re welcome.
Very creative!! I never really think to just focus on one thing with topics like this..I need to remember that for the future.
Thank you. Focusing on one theme can make things more interesting for sure.
Nice take on the challenge. I have a copy of One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish. Capybobby looks so cute! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. 🙂
You’re welcome. Yeah, that’s a classic Dr Seuss book for sure.
I love that you decided to go with aquatic animals! Very fun choice. Capyboppy is my favorite. 😀
Thank you very much!
I love how you always manage to find the most interesting and unique books for your list, instead of going for the common and easy ones – I was definitely expecting to see Remarkably Bright Creatures on this list, with the octopus on the cover. Great list this week!
Aww, thanks. What a nice compliment. And, yeah, that would have been a great pick for it.
Great list, loved Capyboppy.
Great choices! I like capybaras. And trilobites are right down my alley. And squids! Looking at them now…
I am chuffed that I don‘t have cats and dogs in my TTT either… 😏
Cappyboppy is adorable!
I’m glad you think so!
So fun seeing how many people put a specific spin on the topic this week! I just found random animal book covers on my shelf and went with it. 😉 Thanks so much for visiting my website this week.
You’re welcome. Thanks for stopping by.
I love how you highlight animals that don’t always get love on book covers. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.
Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!
You’re welcome. Thank you for your kind words.
Unique list and such cute covers, especially CapyBobby.
Adding Trilobite! Eyewitness to Evolution to my TBR list.
Thank you. I hope you like Trilobite.
I love your take on this week’s theme. The White Seal’s cover is so cute!
Thanks. Yeah, it’s quite cute. 🙂
What a great specific take on the topic, and what fun choices!
I like where you took the prompt this week, Lydia. I have only read One Fish, Two Fish from you list. I can’t believe I haven’t read Capyboby, I thought I read all of Bill Peete’s books over the years.
Thank you. I’ll have to check out Peete’s other work!
Ah that’s different!! I like it, I find that I mainly see birds on cover too, especially ravens or crows. Some of your picks have such hilarious names.. 😂
I thought a wombat would be the most exotic animal I saw today but here you are with a capybara, a platypus, and even a trilobite. I think you win! 🙂
I love that you focused on aquatic animals. It’s definitely a harder task to find them! But I love your selection.
Thank you very much.
I love the Douglas Adams covers!
They’re so fun!
Oh, I like the focused theme! Nice picks, Lydia!
Thank you. 🙂
So fun! I really need to read the rest of the Hitchhiker books — I’ve only read the first two. One of these days…
Ooh, I hope you like them!
