    This is a longer story with beautiful artwork Robert uses repetition well in this story Each person or thing is associated with a sound or a color and whenever that thing is mentioned, he gives the sound or color with it It makes for a fun and dynamic story when reading aloud It was easy to get into the telling of this story.I like Bert s two boats, but he is a brave soul, going out in the water in that old boat I wouldn t do that Bert goes out fishing one day and catches the tail of a wha This is a longer story with beautiful artwork Robert uses repetition well in this story Each person or thing is associated with a sound or a color and whenever that thing is mentioned, he gives the sound or color with it It makes for a fun and dynamic story when reading aloud It was easy to get into the telling of this story.I like Bert s two boats, but he is a brave soul, going out in the water in that old boat I wouldn t do that Bert goes out fishing one day and catches the tail of a whale He gives a bandaid to patch the tail up and a storm brews up Bert goes through some amazing adventures and the whales in this book are very awesome I do like the story, but it s not my favorite Robert McCloskey story It s good It got a little long The nephew loved that the whale swallowed the boat and he loved that Burt began painting it s tummy to get him to throw up He thought that was funny He gave this 4 stars, but he got wiggly by the end, being so long He enjoyed all the sounds The niece thought it was fun to listen too She liked seeing the whales, but she thought the story was slow She gave this 3 stars

    I didn t enjoy this story as much as everyone else on goodreads did I don t like fishing or seeing hooks stuck into living things I did like the illustrations and the idea that Burt escapes the storm by getting swallowed by a whale could make an interesting story but I did feel sorry for the whale with what I expect is meant to be a humorous moment when Burt uses cans of paint to splat the whale s insides with in a Jackson Pollock effect to make the whale ill so he could escape This book cert I didn t enjoy this story as much as everyone else on goodreads did I don t like fishing or seeing hooks stuck into living things I did like the illustrations and the idea that Burt escapes the storm by getting swallowed by a whale could make an interesting story but I did feel sorry for the whale with what I expect is meant to be a humorous moment when Burt uses cans of paint to splat the whale s insides with in a Jackson Pollock effect to make the whale ill so he could escape This book certainly doesn t promote caring about our ocean life and doesn t show respect for living things.The story was quite long but the language seemed to be aimed at a younger reader, lots of repetitive words for noises I like the style of the illustrations and the idea of a story about a whale but I didn t enjoy this one much.Read on open library

    A tall tale about a retired deep water man I loved the line about his painting inside the whale s tummy He was beginning to enjoy himself probably because it was the first time he d ever had a chance to really express his personality in paint This is accompanied by an illustration of the whale s pink tummy, splattered and streaked with yellow, black, and brown splotches it might have been quite modern in 1963.I also liked the complete blackness of the pages just after he convinced the wha A tall tale about a retired deep water man I loved the line about his painting inside the whale s tummy He was beginning to enjoy himself probably because it was the first time he d ever had a chance to really express his personality in paint This is accompanied by an illustration of the whale s pink tummy, splattered and streaked with yellow, black, and brown splotches it might have been quite modern in 1963.I also liked the complete blackness of the pages just after he convinced the whale to swallow him

    Burt Dow takes out his trusty ol Tidely Idley like usual to fish, but ends up having a whale of an adventure.I didn t remember many details about this book from my childhood As an adult, I love the voice that McCloskey gave Burt The repeated sound words and colorful Burtisms really set the tone for this tall tale sea adventure And kids will totally understand why whales would kick up a ruckus for fancy bandaids A delightful tale great for introducing colloquialisms and tall tales.

    Fanciful, yet down to earth Burt Dow is just the sort of old deep water man you d like to have around He knows a thing or two that a younger man wouldn t, that s for sure Now back to stickingband aids on whale tales.

    Somehow, I never realized Robert McCloskey had a book I hadn t read How fun I missed his beautiful line drawings, but this story needed to be told in paint since that s integral to the plot.
