PreS-Gr 2-Señor Sasquatch wants to spend the day by the
pool but doesn't want to get splashed. Water makes his fur "all
squizzilefied." Miss Elephant Shark, Mr. Octo-Rhino, Miss
Goat-Whale, and Miss Loch-Ness-Monster-Space-Alien ask to jump
in the pool. Lifeguard Blobule allows them in but requests that
they please not splash the Sasquatch. Of course, each one does.
And Sasquatch gets squizzilefied. To help him recover, the friends
spin, shimmy, and style him. He is so excited about his great
new look that he has a splashy pool party to celebrate. The colorful,
computer-generated cutout illustrations are fittingly playful
and bright. Characters have wonderfully exaggerated facial expressions.
VERDICT The plot may not be groundbreaking, but readers will
have too much fun to care. A super summertime selection sure
to make a splash.-Amelia Jenkins, Juneau Public Library, AK
