KIRKUS REVIEW

In this book-length joke, the young onlooker is asked to guess what an object is by seeing only part of it, a part which looks like a Rorschach ink blot. As guesses are made, the ""blot"" becomes a plume on a helmet, flames from a dragon's south, smoke from a volcano, a geyser of oil, etc. Here is an interesting approach to objects which is not completely successful; the ""blot"" is not unusual enough or definite enough to stir the imagination, and the watcher would not be surprised at any answer given. Finally it is a whale's spout, but it may just as well have been the geyser, or the plume, or flames, for there is nothing which makes it more like a whale-spout than any of the other objects mentioned.
