This book was amazing I loved it.It was very interesting my favorite part was when he crashed in to the city.my favorite charecter was joe.Joe was very inspiring charecter one day I wish i could be him . suprisingly the people didnt get angry at the whale for destroying there homes.
My 11 month old and I both like this book and I feel it will grow with her as there is lots to talk about in the pictures, which are very detailed, and the language is fairly simple so it might be a useful early reading book.
In this book it talks about how the whale appear in the shore. I also read that the whale helped out the town, because it got flood it. The whale drank the water until the whale saw the land. Overall the whale help the town a lot. This book is a awesome book.
