Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-- A mouse named Amos builds a boat and sets off to sea. In one unfortunate moment, he finds himself cast overboard in the middle of the ocean. As he contemplates his death by drowning, Boris the whale emerges. This Spanish translation is wonderfully told and will be a natural for storytime. The watercolor illustrations capture the emotions of the two very unlikely companions who become best friends.
