- “Auto Play” — plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning pages. Great for younger children!
Young Marco casts his fishing line deep in McElligot’s pool and imagines the curious sea creatures that might bite. “I might catch a fish with a pinwheel-like tail! I might catch a fish who has fins like a snail!” Follow along as his imagination takes him around the world, seeking wild creatures with unusual habits!
