MIke Fink is a story with lots of surprises and great pictures.Mike was able to do many things that seemed impossible. If you want to read about a boy who was determined to get what he wanted, this is the book for you.Our whole class really liked hearing this story.

With "Mike Fink," author and illustrator Steve Kellogg gathers up in one story all the classic elements of an American tall tale: rasslin' with bears, lifting boats over one's head, leaping across great divides, kicking out the slats in one's cradle, and more.
Mike Fink is a young man with a lot to prove and a good heart. Kellogg endows him with burly good looks and a great big smile, even as he has to twist a few arms to get attention paid to his exploits. The cartoon-like illustrations are colorful and boisterous, which perfectly suits the rhythm of the text. Lots of fun for any kid who enjoys tall tales (especially tall tales with a Mark Twainesque flavor, as this has rivers and steamboats a-plenty!).

I love reading this book to myself but i'm waiting to read it to my son. I've always loved Steven Kellogg's illustrations and can't wait for my son to be able to really see all the details in the pages. Plus I want to broaden his creative side and Mike Fink is the way to do that.

I love all of these Steven Kellogg American folk tales. Amazing illustrations and fun stories that were meant to be passed down.

It is clear that this is a tall tale as Mike runs away from home at age two days. The illustrations are very well done. BUT Mike Fink was a real person, and I would prefer a real story about the real character instead of this yarn. Kellogg could have made up a character and told the same story. It has nothing to do with the real Mike Fink.
