KIRKUS REVIEW

...Well, maybe. But there's no maybes about this account of a boy's hypothetical weekend under water. From the moment he boards the Skim Bus (at nine o'clock) for the Deep Down Place where a sub is waiting it's all matter-of-fact--""All aboard for Deep Down Lodge! On the way you'll want to shoot pictures of the Kelly Kelp Farm and the Finnigan Fish Ranch... At Deep Down Lodge you will make a very good friend indeed,""--the Snooper-in-Chief of the Sea Snoopers Club! The boy passes all the tests for the S.S.C., including catching a turtle and staying on him for five minutes, and earns his S.S.C. t-shirt. We could pass it off as Danny Dunn, j.g., except for all those injunctions: how can they be so sure? Inventive illustrations in a combination of comic-book literalism (for the figures) and free-flowing abstractions (for the undersea landscape.)
