The Sea Monster Reviews
Silly story about a rabbit and mouse who are visiting a park. The mouse sees what he fears is a sea monster in the pond. The rabbit continues to say it can't possibly be that and give rationale for why it is probably other things. There is a nice twist at the end. Fun and funny! Recommended for Gr. K-3.
Steve the opossum and Wessley the rabbit are back in this comedic follow-up to their first adventure, The Ice Cream Shop. As the duo are walking by the pond on their way to have lunch, Steve thinks he sees a sea monster floating in the pond, but Wessley thinks it's just a stick and sets out to convince Steven and the reader that it couldn't possibly be a sea monster. As the two banter back and forth, astute readers will find a secondary story happening in the background involving a sleeping bear, a book, and several curious ducks. Children will enjoy the surprise ending and the last page that ties up all the previous visual clues left by the author. The spare text, accompanied by bright cartoon illustrations, is sure to appeal to fans of Elephant and Piggie and Hippo and Rabbit. Recommended.
Did Steve really really see a sea monster? He sure is convinced. But his friend, Wessley, is equally convinced that it is NOT a sea monster. I think Wessley doesn't believe there is such a thing as a sea monster. By the end, one friend will be proved right as readers will see. But will Wessley be right? Or will Steve be right? Can readers follow all the clues? Can they guess which friend is right?
The idea of the story was appealing and got us to read it, but too many new words/only used once words, and THEN the characters just littered and left their garbage by the pond and the imaginary monster picks it up :( Boo.
STeve and Wessley debate the probability of a sea monster siting in this humorous early reader.
Totally predictable, but it plays itself out in a very satisfying way.
Funny book. The reader needs to pay attention to the pictures, too to really get the humor. Young readers will enjoy it.
Steve & Wessley are walking along beside a pond. Steve saw something in the water. Maybe a sea monster! Wessley says it is just a stick. Funny story with cute illustrations!
Cute but a little boring. Ages 5-7.
