From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- A simple environmental tale. Sally is playing at the beach when she finds a brightly colored shell. As she pries it off a rock, the limpet suctions itself to her finger and won't let go. Sally's father, brother, teacher, classmates, and even the doctor try to remove it, but none are successful. Finally, in a fit of frustration, Sally runs back to the beach and jumps into the water. Back in familiar surroundings, the shell detaches itself from Sally's finger. She remembers learning that limpets spend their lives in one spot, so she carefully returns it to its original place. The subtle live-and-let-live lesson is strengthened by James's whimsical pen-and-ink drawings with watercolor washes. Reminiscent of Quentin Blake's work, they add charm and humor and bring the story to life. The length of text, format, and vocabulary are accessible to beginning readers and make a suitable classroom read-aloud. --Laura Culberg, Chicago Public Library Cultural Center
