Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-K- Seamore has a serious problem. He can't remember anything, including his friends' names and how to play the simplest of games. Tying reminder notes to his fins and tail doesn't help, so he decides to go off in search of his missing memory. On his journey, he meets a killer whale, a creature he fails to recognize because he can't remember anything from his "Hazards for Midsize Sea Mammals" lesson at school. For some unexplained reason, the whale befriends Seamore instead of eating him, and, just as mysteriously, the porpoise remembers his favorite games and plays them with the whale. He also gives the whale complicated directions to his home. The visitor is equally well mannered when he arrives, plays nicely with the other little porpoises, and decides to stay. Seamore is just as forgetful, but now the whale will be there to remind him of the important things. The lack of logic here will be questioned by even the youngest children, who might also ask why none of Seamore's porpoise friends helped him in the first place. Seibold's computer-generated art is bright, cheery, and child-friendly with clean, simple lines, but it fails to rescue this tale, which simply makes no sense.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ

Kirkus Reviews
Take a sweet and innocent story, twist it with a little surrealism, unleash Seibold's Never-Never-Land artwork upon it and-say presto!-you will have a celebration of the passing strange that refuses to grow old. Edgemon's story is a most suitable vehicle for Seibold: dear and deadpan. As noted, young Seamore is a very forgetful porpoise, and we are not talking multiplication tables or the capitals of South American countries. Seamore forgets who his friends are; he forgets how to play his favorite games. What's a memory-challenged porpoise to do? His quest leads him to discover 1) he has a hole in the top of his head and 2) that he has forgotten killer whales are his mortal enemies. Not to worry, though, for if Kevin the killer whale has spooky eyes, he hasn't a porpoise-eating bone in his body. The matter-of-fact storyline is picked out with clever corniness, while the illustrations bring touches of tropical color to the otherwise soft-hued canvases as they pump every ounce of drollery out of the text.
