"All aboard! Come along with me!" Read straight through, the rhythmic text is pleasing if undistinguished, but stopping after each line to identify shapes ("What are the shapes of these small fish?") makes it difficult to follow the story. The quilted fabric illustrations, which incorporate many simple shapes into fanciful images of an ocean journey, are the main draw. Copyright 2006 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PreS In this simple concept book, two youngsters and a Dalmatian set out on a raft, calling readers: All aboard! Come along with me!/Let's see what shapes we can find on the sea. They come across many exotic scenesincluding a pirate ship, a fantastic sea monster, and a green submarineand invite children to search for nine basic shapes. The directions are consistently straightforward: Can you count all of these triangles? What are the shapes of these sails? The minimal text is paired with colorful, eye-catching artwork made from fabric collages that radiate across the spreads. Although the patterned, patchwork ocean is occasionally a bit overwhelming, children will enjoy searching the briny depths for the little fish and sea creatures hidden there.Piper L.
