Table of Contents

"The playful, rhyming verse is well matched with Hanna’s funny cartoon illustrations." --School Library Journal

“With colorful seascapes and bright-eyed ocean characters, Hanna gives this spirited tale light doses of humor (‘Rest stop!’ reads a neon sign on an anglerfish's lure), as Diesen delivers a gentle moral: ‘The ocean is wide,/ And the ocean is deep,/ But friends help friends--/ That's a promise we keep.’.”Publishers Weekly

“An entertaining read-aloud and a nice lighthearted vehicle for dealing with fear.” –Kirkus Reviews
