"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"
