KIRKUS REVIEW

King James never heard ""snizzersnoop"" in his book of Jonah but that and ""ploosh"" and ""galoomf"" jazz up this version without juggling the meaning. The great fish, scaled, looks uncomfortable carrying human cargo in his watery interior (Jonah floats ""on a salt green tide""), all stylized to good effect and very becomingly colored. Live(ly)bait--it'll make waves.
