From School Library Journal:
JONATHAN BEAN has a master's degree in illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York. He has illustrated several books for young readers, including Mokie and Bik. He lives in New York City.
Grade 2–4—Written in a whimsical style that borders on poetry, this second book about seafaring twins tells of preparations for the Bullfrog to go to sea. The children are always underfoot and have the run of the houseboat as their parents prepare to depart. The text is a bit confusing. For example, one passage reads, "Dad didn't want anyone to know he was a parrot. That's why he brought Waggles when he came home...instead of a pirate named Jezebel." The story involves children overboard, adventures with a seal, and fueling up the vessel. Readers have to contend with odd letter substitutions like "botormike," "tortle," and "neagle"; there are exclamations of "illy-ally-o"; and there's ship talk. Frequent black-and-white illustrations add to the zaniness of the fast-paced story. The book packs so much energy that readers will be panting when they finish.
