Booklist - 05/15/2022 Fish woke up early in search of a friend. Wave seemed sweet. At first she was just a teeny, tiny little wave, but then she rose and grew, scaring Fish. She apologized, but she also explained that waves rise, and she can’t help it. This time, when she starts to rise again, she invites Fish to hold on, and they rise and crash together for the time of their lives. Ruzzier’s unmissable watercolor artwork yet again features sweet-hearted creatures in warm friendship tales, as he has so deeply mastered. His use of muted sunrise pinks and seafoam greens in visible, sweeping brushstrokes are calming and delightful, and his ability to somehow anthropomorphize a wave is both admirable and as adorable as his furrow-browed fish. HarperCollins’ I Can Read Comics series continues to produce great work to fill a high-demand gap for very early readers, and this Level 1 tale, produced by a comics master, manages to weave a lovely story within its tiny word count. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
