I love the graphics and the meaning of the little book...Thank you for stories like this by authors who did have fun
with their talent.
This is one of the most empowering concepts for a young child to grasp. It is the message at the heart of this story.
When the whale saves a mouse drowning at sea, we are happy to see a creature so big, helping one so little. But later, when the mouse is able to return the favor by saving the beached whale, we cheer him on!
Steig's prose is rich and draws you into the story. He gives us a phosphorescent sea, an immense starry sky, and a mouse's quivering daintiness. Artfully done as well, are his presentation of some very grown up concepts: having ambitions in life, whether we go to heaven when we die, and having to move on and say goodbye to a dear friend.
My son and I enthusiastically recommend this book!
It is such a sweet mellow book about real life friendship and the transient nature of time.
The illustrations are great, as with all Steig books.
A must have on your child's book shelf.
