About this title


Sam decides to help his mother with her chores, but things have a way of going wrong in spite of his enthusiasm and generosity

From School Library Journal:

ea. vol: illus. by Jonathan Lambert. unpaged. Aladdin. 1988. Tr $4.95. LC number unavailable. PreSchool-Grade 1 Two unsuccessful books. In Sam at the Seaside, Sam surfs on a shark's nose and reels in a submarine. In the second, he helps his mother with disastrous results. The sink overflows, cans crash at the grocery store, the hose shoots water on the neighbor next door. The pencil and watercolor illustrations filling both pages are too cluttered. The fold-out half pages when opened expand the double-page spread, but when closed, the flaps are other wildlife perch on the dishes. There is just too much going on, most of it unrelated to the text. Finally, Sam is a totally flat character with the same smirk on his face and saggy diaper from beginning to end. Preschool children, not to mention older ones, will not be able to relate to these books. There are many gimmick books that are well done (notably Hill's ``Spot'' series Putnam); these should be deep-sixed. Nancy Kewish, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Cleveland
