Wonderful, Entertaining Tale of a Sea Serpent Who Does Good,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cyrus the Unsinkable Sea Serpent (Paperback)
My boys, 6 and 3, have heard this story a minimum of 50 times (gee, if you add up all the times they've heard all the Bill Peet books, the number gets kind of big). It has suspense, pathos, bravery, and the bad guys get it in the end with a big KERWHAM! We love it. Folkmanis, by the way, makes a fabulous sea serpent puppet that is almost a dead ringer for Cyrus; ours has become a permanent part of family life, thanks to this wonderful story.
