From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- A pleasant, simple story akin to Aardema's Who's In Rabbit's House (Dial, 1977). A colorful whirlpool of dabbled paint in blues, greens, and yellows leads from the endpapers into the reeds at the edge of a river where two nervous ducks have discovered a "furry snake." As they flee up river, they meet Vole, Frog, Fish, Kingfisher, Heron, and finally, a boy named Pete. By now the fearful thing has cumulatively become "a gigantic enormous fat horrible scary long furry snake," which on closer inspection proves to be only the cat's tale--frightening, perhaps, but familiar enough to provide a good laugh. The strength of this book lies in its illustrations. Thickly applied dabs of brightly colored paint comprise the impressionistic surroundings--trees, grass, mud, and water--setting off and highlighting realistically rendered animals. Black line drawings on the pages of spare text supplement the full-page paintings. There is a real depth to these paintings, and a clarity that makes them strongly appealing. The dabs of paint lead from page to page, and from endpaper to endpaper. The cumulative text lends itself to reading aloud; it will also fit nicely into the beginning whole language curriculum. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
