William Steig is so fantastic. We love all of his books with their simple, honest drawings. This one is about an unlikely friendship between a mouse and a whale. Amos is saved from drowning by Boris and on their way back to land a comfortable friendship develops between them. Later Amos is able to repay his friend by saving him when he is accidentally beached.
I have one husband, three children, two cats and a house full of too many books to count. I love to read, ride my bike, bake, develop my own photographs, and I've been known to neglect all housework to play with my kids.
