Recommends it for: beginning readers and children who enjoy graphic novels
This book offers a humorous look at a group of friends having fun at a pool. We recently discovered the Balloon Toons series of early graphic novel books and we've enjoyed them. They are fun, fast reads and feel like a long comic, rather than a true graphic novel.

We all read this book separately and it's a very fast read. I would recommend it for younger children and beginning readers.

Three little vignettes of Elephant, Alligator, and Stork at the pool. I'm sure kids will like it. A little baffled about the presentation of this Balloon Toons series. Each book (on the back) proclaims "PICTURES and WORDS TOGETHER!" Even most books aimed at babies are PICTURES and WORDS TOGETHER! Not sure why Blue Apple seems to be promoting this as some sort of novel concept...

Very cute! Long's simple art and text combine nicely to make three silly stories about summertime fun. Kids who spend their summers at the local pool will definitely appreciate the appeal.

Cute, but not very interesting.
