PreSchool-Grade 1 The appeal of this book lies in the flaps on each page that lift to reveal some added feature of the illustration. This slight story finds Mr. Little preparing his boat for a quiet fishing trip. Helping Mr. Little investigate strange noises on his boat, readers lift a flap on each page, to find a sea lion painting the foredeck, an octopus washing the porthole, a parrot sorting fishing lines, etc. There is an initial novelty of discovering what's under the flap, and the bold illustrations are eye-grabbing, but there is very little to recommend the book. Leave the novelty books to Tomie dePaola ( Giorgio's Village Putnam, 1982) and the boat books to someone like Jan Adkins, whose Workboats (Scribners, 1985) is much sterner stuff. Hayden E. Atwood, Cape Elizabeth Middle School, Maine
