From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 3-This fictionalized account of a salmon's journey from the Pacific Ocean to the spawning grounds describes the difficulties of the trip. Sockeye must elude various predators including bears, ospreys, and humans. During the arduous swim, his body changes in preparation for reproduction. An author's note emphasizes how human activities have drastically reduced the sockeye salmon population. Popeo's artwork is adequate but static. In fact, the entire production looks as though it were designed chiefly to supplement teaching units. If demand for books on the topic exceeds supply, this could serve as an adequate introduction. Bruce McMillan's Salmon Summer (Houghton, 1998) provides an Alaskan-native perspective on the salmon run and uses photos instead of paintings to illustrate events.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato
