Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Phyllis Kennemer
Leon, a spotted moray eel, is the champion hide-and-seek player near the reef. But things change when Fifi, a grouper fish, moves in. Leon goes into hiding in his own home. He is frightened because he knows that groupers sometimes eat eels. Three weeks go by and Fifi knocks on Leon's door. He does not let her in and remains in hiding for two more weeks. Eels can go a long time without eating, but Leon is getting hungry. When he sticks his head out, Fifi is waiting. Leon asks if she plans to eat him. She laughs and says he is too big. Feeling reassured, Leon comes on out. He and Fifi become hunting partners. The various fish exhibit human characteristics and expressions in the colorful illustrations. Fans of Sponge Bob Square Pants cartoons will find the undersea setting familiar. Facts about eels are given on the first page, although they do not apply to the story. Intended as a beginning read alone book, suggestions for parents and caregivers are included. "Stone Arch Readers" series, Level 3. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
