He has a little problem: He can never remember "anything," Homework? Favorite games? The names of his friends? "Forget it!"

Then one day Seamore runs--"smack!"--into a killer whale.

Or are they?

This was a sweet story. Seamore is very well-intentioned and intelligent, but clearly has trouble getting through just about every part of daily life because of his memory problems. I think this would actually be quite useful for introducing the concept of memory loss and brain damage issues to children, especially short-term memory loss.

A bit long-winded; I'd be curious to try this on preschoolers and see what their concept of memory vs. forgetfulness is. The illustrations by J. Otto Seibold are a treat; imagine trying to draw "a porpoise trying to remember something." He does it well!

I was pretty disappointed in this one. The story was very strange (in a negative way), and the illustrations, while interesting, were not as involved and detailed as Seibold usually makes them.
