Meet the Author

Robert McCloskey (1914-2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children's books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first ever two-time Caldecott Medal winner, for Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder, McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Journey Cake, Ho! by Ruth Sawyer.  He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000.  You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston's Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio.

BURT DOW Deep-Water Man was the last book by Robert McCloskey and one of his best. Burt Dow in his multicolored boat Tidely-Idley with the company of his pet giggling gull put-puts out on the ocean to fish. He manages to catch a WHALE by the tail and that is just the beginning of his adventures. A storm comes up and he sails the Tidely-Idley into the whale's stomach for shelter. After the storm his problem is how to get out of the whale. A liberal application of old paint and grease makes the whale burp and Burt Dow escapes-boat and gull. The colorful drawings are a joy.

Would recommend any books by McCloskey! They remind today's generations of easier yet harder times growing up in Maine!
