    1. Book Title: Seamore, The Very Forgetful Porpoise by Darcie EdgemonShort Description of Book: Seamore is a porpoise who is very forgetful. He becomes so frustrated that he sets out on his own adventure to find his memory that he thinks he has lost. After several different encounters he encounters a Killer Whale named Kevin but Seamore thinks he is just like him…y larger. Kevin helps Seamore remember some of his favorite things and he invites him to dinner with all of the other porpoises. While [...]

    2. 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.

    3. 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!

    4. 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.
