Reviews

"The playful, rhyming verse is well matched with Hanna's funny cartoon illustrations." --"School Library Journal

""With colorful seascapes and bright-eyed ocean characters, Hanna gives this spirited tale light doses of humor ('Rest stop!' reads a neon sign on an anglerfish's lure), as Diesen delivers a gentle moral: 'The ocean is wide, / And the ocean is deep, / But friends help friends--/ That's a promise we keep.'." -"Publishers Weekly

""An entertaining read-aloud and a nice lighthearted vehicle for dealing with fear." -"Kirkus Reviews"
