Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Mrs. Page's class from Miss Alaineus: A Vocabulary Disaster turns to science in The Incredible Water Show by Debra Frasier. The fifth-graders perform onstage in skits that discuss properties of water and the water cycle. Addressing readers directly, two students assume the roles of a circus-like master of ceremonies, while their peers chime in with comments of varying relevance and levels of hyperbole. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A group of six fifth-grade youngsters known as the Tower Hill Players worked on a science fair project about water. They developed a play from the original report and this book is the presentation of the play. On each of the bright yellow pages, the boldly drawn and costumed "actors" demonstrate to the readers the science of water. Everything from the chemical makeup of water to condensation is discussed and explained. Dressed as pirates the characters cleverly present the need for sensible use and conservation of water. This is a unique way to approach a science unit that kids should find interesting and entertaining. While the publishers suggest the book for ages three and up, there is far too much material here for the youngest to comprehend. The upper grade levels would greatly benefit from the book. It is a welcome addition to the scientific study of water. 2004, Harcourt Children's Books, Ages 6 up.
—Sylvia Firth
Kirkus Reviews
The fifth-graders from Frasier's Miss Allaneus: A Vocabulary Disaster (2000) are back in a bloated attempt to present basic water concepts. Here, in a quest for extra credit, the students stage a play about the subject. Sage, Starr, Forest, and friends use props and physical gestures to explain basic facts, including the molecular make-up of water and the water cycle. But speech bubbles and activity overflow Frasier's full-bleed spreads. There's simply too much going on to make concepts clear. In the final pages, a pirate inexplicably appears, quoting Coleridge's Rime of the Ancient Mariner and decrying the lack of fresh water on board his ship. Rendered with markers, in the same bright, bold style as Miss Allaneus, the illustrations have a distinctly school-like style. (Picture book. 8-10)
