Extraordinary illustrations. The composition, design and color are great. It makes it all exciting and very professional. I'm not a big fan of rhyming books but this was actually very fun to read as an adult. It surely is a great collection to have as a paperback too. The kids had lots of fun, the story incited their imagination and discussion. I love a great children's book with a lot of improbable and surreal adventures. ( )

A great rhyming story about Mr. Magee and his little dog Dee taking a boat ride. They encounter an unruly little whale who's big splash lands them in a tree. The other whales come to save the day and Magee and Dee eat their lunch for dinner that day. Wonderful illustrations!

A favorite read aloud, great for rhyming and for narrative prediction. ( )

This is a book about a man and his dog who love to take adventurous boat rides. They set out to sea early in the morning, and soon things take a turn for the worse. A curious whale that simply waned to play got underneath their boat and with his blowhole blasted the two into the top of a tree on a nearby island. They begin to fear that they will never get down as the sun begins to set. Just in time, about fifty whales gather around the island and help by making such a big splash that the boat is set free. The book has a catchy rhyme and great illustrations! ( )
