Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Two small, stoic fishermen sail around the world on an ice floe, having various nautical adventures with minimal fuss and arriving home in time for bed. In each spread, understated four-word couplets by Crowley (Ugh! A Bug!) accompany Day’s (Duel!: Burr and Hamilton’s Deadly War of Words) loose pencil-and-watercolor paintings. The pair’s trip begins when a fishing line gets snagged on an orca and they’re towed dragged into the ocean at top speed (“Salty brine/ Floating free/ Tangled line/ Out to sea”). Later, a flock of puffins chasing fish creates a giant wake; Nanook and Pryce’s pet husky frightens potential predators away (“Round and round/ Warning barks/ Fearless hound/ Scaredy sharks”); and a detour into the tropics necessitates suntan lotion as well as sunglasses for the husky. Through it all, Nanook and Pryce sit across from each other unperturbed, their expressionless faces barely visible from within the puffy hoods of their oversize parkas. It’s a great running joke, and Crowley’s verse and Day’s tongue-in-cheek spreads are as well-paired as Nanook and Pryce. Ages 3–8. (Nov.)
School Library Journal
Gr 1–3—Crowley's perfectly rhymed narrative about an accidental adventure is both minimal and evocative, and Day's watercolor and line illustrations turn some very funny text into a hilarious book. Two boys so wrapped up in furry hooded jackets that only a pair of round spectacles distinguishes one from the other drill a hole in the center of an ice floe. "Hi, Nanook/Morning, Pryce/Baiting hooks/Drilling ice." A bird tries to steal one of the worms as the wiggly creatures watch in horror. Calmly looking on from the water are a mother polar bear and her cub. In the following pages, the boys remain remarkably focused on fishing as they're towed away by whales, caught in a lobster net, frozen into ice cubes, and so on. Only their dog, Yukon, reacts to the terrible dangers of their voyage around the globe. When the little ice floe sails safely back into its jigsaw-cutout space, the boys return home to their igloo, to sleep. Yukon curls up with the can of exhausted worms tucked into his curly tail. The spreads are packed with visual jokes: a large undersea oyster shell contains a bowling ball, a penguin holds an umbrella, worms wear life vests, and more. This story will delight readers.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Appropriating a sturdy ice floe for fishing, igloo roommates Nanook and Pryce, their faithful dog, Yukon, and three put-upon worms set about catching their daily fare. To a consistently upbeat rhyming text the two survive everything from sharks and commercial fishing boats to frigid temperatures and pelicans. "Breakfast break / Puffins pass / Giant wake / Bye-bye, bass." Phrases rarely need more than three words and are accompanied by Day's watercolors, which reveal frequent surprises (keep your eyes on the worms). The deadpan Nanook and Pryce, faces almost completely buried in their parka hoods and unmoving (or merely clueless) in the face of multiple foes and dangers, are ideal foils for the lively dog and riotous backgrounds. Perhaps it's not a go-to source for anyone hoping for an accurate portrayal of the Native cultures of the North, as these heroes bear far more similarities to cartoons than actual people, but for readers who disregard that detail, it's an amusing collaboration.
