We bought this book for our nephew and are now going to buy one for ourselves-we stock pile children's books while we plan for our own children.

This is the type of book your children will remember as a childhood favorite. Bright, colorful illustrations, rhyming text, a story line that includes a dog and is just plain silly, made it a hit with my children.

The story is exciting and fun and the rhyme makes is a joy to read. It's a wonderful tale of frienship and adventure with a sweet ending. The illustrations are colorful and whimsical. This book has a classic feel and my kids love it! It's our new favorite. It'll take you places you've never been!

This is a book about a man and his dog who love to take adventurous boat rides. They set out to sea early in the morning, and soon things take a turn for the worse. A curious whale that simply waned to play got underneath their boat and with his blowhole blasted the two into the top of a tree on a nearby island. They begin to fear that they will never get down as the sun begins to set. Just in time, about fifty whales gather around the island and help by making such a big splash that the boat is set free. The book has a catchy rhyme and great illustrations!

A great rhyming story about Mr. Magee and his little dog Dee taking a boat ride. They encounter an unruly little whale who's big splash lands them in a tree. The other whales come to save the day and Magee and Dee eat their lunch for dinner that day. Wonderful illustrations!A favorite read aloud, great for rhyming and for narrative prediction.
