Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Michael Jung
A sequel to Pixar's popular Finding Nemo animated movie, this graphic novel finds clownfish Marlin and his son Nemo facing a new problem when the coral reefs in their part of the ocean begin dying. Determined to save the coral, the two team up with forgetful fish Dory and surfer dude turtle Squirt to find Nemo's old friend Gil and see if they can learn why the coral is dying—and how to stop it. Along the way the adventurers meet new characters like Seth, a giant squid, and a mysterious aquatic tribe that may hold the answer to their problem. Overall, this graphic novel is like many of Disney's Direct-to-DVD sequels—fun in its own way but unable to capture the spark of the original. To her credit, writer Marie Croall does not just rehash old plots—many of the characters even show signs that they have grown since the events of the movie. Marlin, in particular, is much more willing to let his son go on adventures, while Nemo is portrayed as a more confident fish. Curiously, the plot seems to hint at an environmental angle (since dying coral has been linked to human pollution and global warming), yet this possibility is eventually dropped in favor of a sea monster threat. Perhaps it was just easier to show the fish battling a physical enemy that could be overcome within four chapters—yet ultimately this approach is unsatisfying. Reviewer: Michael Jung
