This is a modern day story about a young boy that dreams he is a manatee. The story like most other John Lithgow children’s books is in rhyme. The boy dreams that he has the dietary habits of a manatee. He sprinkles sea weed in his Raisin Bran- ate, he never fails to lick his platter clean. The perfect manatee cuisine. No one will hear him use profanity his a manatee has his image to maintain. The story also has a twist of some where a manatee is dreaming of him.
This is a very short 26 page story for children around 4 to 8. I doubt if even 300 words of text. I noticed John Lithgow was even drawn into one of closing pages on boy’s book shelf. The book ends with two pages of song lyrics of “I’m a Manatee” with lyrics by John Lithgow and music by Bill Elliot. The hard cover book that I got from library was missing CD. I suppose could find on internet.
