Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Time and tide may wait for no man, but without them there would be no happy ending to this story. Pail in hand, Baby Bill declares he wants a "pet fishy," so his sister, Little Lil, agrees to take him down the very steep, lime-green hill that leads to the sea. Along the way, the party grows to include a bird, a bee, three sheep, a Dalmatian and a cat; through a combination of momentum and Baby Bill's enthusiasm, the group reaches their destination in a tumble, and Bill's pail floats out to sea. But Lil counsels patience, and when the moon rises, "In came the waves; in came the pail"--and Bill gets his fishy. Heap's narrative has a diffuse feel and doesn't achieve the warm intimacy of her Cowboy Baby; the story's focus seems torn between Bill's quest and the accumulation and interaction of the secondary characters. But the full-bleed, double-spread drawings carry the book on the strength of their vibrancy and cheeriness, and Heap's quirky, petite characters pop off the densely colored backdrops of sky, sand, sea and grass. Several paintings starring the two siblings show the artist at her best. Ages 3-up. (Sept.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Wendy Pollock-Gilson
Baby Bill wants to catch a pet fish in his pail, so he and his sister Lil walk down the hill to the sea. Friendly animal neighbors join them on their stroll. Disaster strikes when everyone tumbles together and baby Bill's bucket floats out to the ocean. All the friends give up hope and are rather grumpy, but Lil has faith and makes a wish on a star. Soon the pail floats back on a moonbeam and it even contains a fish for baby Bill. Simple brightly colored illustrations and rhyming text make this an appealing picture book for young children. Bundle with Mother Goose's "Jack and Jill" rhyme for storyhours.
Library Journal
PreS-When Little Lil takes Baby Bill to catch a pet "fishy," Clive Cat; Dilly Dog; Sam, Sue, and Sid Sheep; and Bird and Bee join the fun. As they run faster and faster down the hill, they tumble and Baby's pail is lost. Bill cries. Everyone goes home to bed, but Bill and Lil. They wish by the sea until the waves bring back Bill's pail with-of course-a pet "fishy." Though a bit too precious, this tale has a childlike innocence combined with a surreal quality that sometimes appeals to the very young. The colorful illustrations featuring the two children and an odd assortment of cartoon critters in various bits of dress-a cat in pajamas; a dog in a coat, hat, and athletic shoes carrying a purse; sheep in sweaters, hats, scarves, and boots-are very flat, but simple and boldly colored. While fans of Heap's Cowboy Baby (Candlewick, 1998) will be ready for this trip to the ocean, the uninitiated may want to test the water before plunging in.-Jody McCoy, The Bush School, Seattle, WA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
