THE SEAL AND THE SLICK

Email this review

KIRKUS REVIEW

The soft, romantic water color washes and sweetly childlike drawings of the seal and its young rescuers are inadequate for the technological tragedy which nearly drowns the seal incapacitated by an oil spill. And because only one foolhardy "young explorer" is caught in the slick while the older, wiser sea lions avoid the danger, Freeman inadvertently suggests that the pup is partly to blame for his own troubles. A smoothed out, toned down ecology lesson for the very youngest -- provided the message doesn't slide right over their heads.
