Eric Carle. Already a legend because of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" which no toddler book collection should be without. But his other stuff is extremely good too, and Mister Seahorse has more than a few tricks up its sleeve to keep toddlers entertained. Galloping around under the sea, Mister Seahorse encounters various sea life on his travels. The neat "hook" for this book are several transparent pages that "hide" fish, ready for your toddler to reveal with a turn of a page. You really can't go wrong with Eric Carle / Bill Martin Jr but definitely give Mister Seahorse a read as it seems to be something of an overlooked Carle classic.
